NetComposites is pleased to welcome the Network Group for Composites in Construction (NGCC), the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) and Composites Europe as formal sponsors of its composites in construction event, CompIC.
The conference, which is set to examine ‘What are the biggest barriers to the use of composites in construction and what progress is being made?’ is taking place on 3rd February, 2015 at The Park Hotel, Amsterdam, Netherlands. It will analyse trends in the current and future use of composites in construction and the benefits they provide to the construction industry.
The following day, The Park Hotel will also host a free-to-attend exhibition and conference, where construction-themed European Commission supported research and development projects will present overviews of their work with the added benefit of a mini exhibition to allow for networking with industry professionals. Eric van Uden of Solico, the company which engineered the complete composite facade for the Stedelijk Museum, will also be presenting during the event.
