MATCOMP is the most important event for the scientific, academic and business community in the field of composite and high-performance materials in Spain. It is a biennial congress promoted by AEMAC to encourage research and use of composite materials.
This edition, organized jointly by AEMAC, CTAG and the University of Vigo, will be the first to be held in Galicia, and will focus on strengthening the impact of composites on Industry 4.0 and on the Circular Economy for strategic sectors such as the automotive industry, the naval industry, aeronautics, renewable energy and the construction sector, among others.
21, 22 and 23 June 2017
This biennial congress provides a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of research and innovation projects related to the field of composites and high performance materials. This year, the Congress aims to reinforce the presence of advanced materials in relevant sectors in Spain, such as aeronautics, the automotive industry, railways, capital goods and machining/tooling, etc.
CTAG will take advantage of the forum of specialists that meets in this congress to present the conclusions of FORTAPE project (H2020-FOF, nº 636860) and to show how the experience gained in this project was key to make a centre specialized in the automotive business, like CTAG, find synergies and transfer possibilities in another technological sector, like aeronautics, opening a new line of work in order to capitalize and add value to the wide experience acquired over years of research and specialized customer service. Thus, through the new AEROCAR project (Interreg SUDOE, SOE1 / P1 / E0020), it is possible to boost an upward sector that is already prioritized in the European Commission’s strategic innovation agendas, Member States and even for many regional governments, which will generate an important socio-economic impetus for the regions included in the European Southwest Space.
The MATCOMP 2017 congress will take place at the Kursaal Congress Hall in San Sebastian from June 21 to 23. Check here the full programme: http://matcomp2017.com/images/PROGRAMA-MATCOMP2017.pdf
