NetComposites to Bring Composites Industry Together at Composites Innovation 2014

The two day conference will showcase the latest research and technical developments in fibre-reinforced composites (FRPs).

Composites Innovation will take place on 5 – 6 June 2014 in Manchester, UK. The conference will focus on FRP materials and the opportunities they can bring across a wide range of industrial sectors.

NetComposites are currently seeking papers for inclusion at the event.  Abstracts on all other relevant topics will also be considered.

As well as the presentations, the conference will be complimented by a networking drinks reception and the event will sit alongside a small exhibition. Other sponsorship options are also available.

Over recent years there has been a trend towards large light-weight structures in many industries including wind, aerospace, construction and mass transit. These structures can pose considerable challenges to the designer. Material and manufacturing developments mean that fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites offer a solution to many of these challenges, exploiting in particular their high strength-to weight ratio and excellent durability properties.

Claire Whysall, NetComposites’ Event and Network Manager commented, “This is the fourth time NetComposites has run the Composites Innovation conference and each year it builds upon the last, creating a picture of the composites industry and how it is driving forward. It provides a great networking forum for the exchange of information on the challenges and successes of using FRPs in a range of applications.”

Abstracts from organisations wishing to be included in the conference are welcomed on or before the deadline of 28th February 2014. These should be sent to

Registration for the event is now open, with a special “early bird” rate currently available. Full details can be found at
