Scientific program on November 30th 2019

On Saturday, November 30th 2019 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, our attendees will once more have the opportunity to tour the following institutes as small groups:

  • Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology at TU Dresden (ITM)
  • Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology at TU Dresden (ILK)
  • Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden e.V. (IPF)

A round trip to each of the three institutes is offered with an hour long guided tour through the laboratories and machine room areas at each stop. The tours will be arranged into small groups of participants.

Participation is free of charge. The number of participants is limited to just 21 persons (3 groups of 7 participants).

A separate registration for this offer is required. Please use the online conference registration form.
