International Colloquium Plastics Technology IKV demonstrates current research activities
Germany - On the occasion of a recently held press conference, the Aachen-based IKV opened its doors to give selected journalists an insight into the institute's research activities. Speakers will also tackle these and other current topics in research at IKV's upcoming Colloquium in February 2016.
From 24 to 25 February 2016, the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University will host the 28th edition of its renowned "International Colloquium Plastics Technology" in Aachen, Germany from 24-25 February. The event, which is held every two years, is again expected to attract some 800 experts from the global plastics industry, the organisers said. In 2014, the Colloquium brought together delegates from more than 300 companies and 15 nations. Because of the international character of the event, all papers will be interpreted simultaneously into English.
Over the two days of the event, IKV researchers will present the latest research projects at the IKV, while well-known industry experts will underline the practical relevance of the research results for the plastics and related industries.
Furthermore, five plenary lectures given by high-calibre speakers from the plastics segment will deal with the latest topics affecting the industry: additive manufacturing, “Industry 4.0” and lightweight construction.
