The event, ‘Opportunities for Fibre Reinforced Polymers in the Automotive Sector’, will take place at the International Digital Laboratory, University of Warwick, UK, on the 19th June.
The conference will enable delegates to learn about current and future opportunities for fibre-reinforced polymers (FRPs) within the automotive industry and will provide an opportunity to discuss the future direction of UK automotive composites.
Presentations will be delivered by the Warwick Manufacturing Group, epm:technology, Engenuity Limited, e-Xstream Engineering, QinetiQ, Composites Evolution, Cranfield University and the National Composites Centre.
Claire Whysall, Event and Network Manager at NetComposites said, “The automotive sector is one of the most advanced when it comes to the use of FRPs in high-end supercars.However, using them in mainstream vehicles is a source of untapped potential. We hope this event will generate a lot of discussion and delegates will go away with ideas on how this can be achieved, and will introduce them to materials and processes they may not have considered before.”
Registration for this event is open with full details available from the conference website.
