Published: 3 June 2019

Luleå University of Technology is happy to invite you to the annual meeting Tribodays which are held in Kista, Stockholm 12-13 November 2019. Tribodays are held every autumn and is a meeting open for people from industry, institutes and academia and everybody who have interest in tribology and tribology R&D. The conference will be held in Kista at Swerim, Isafjordsgatan 28 A, 164 40 Kista, Sweden and the dinner at Hotel Memory.

New findings and new methodologies will be presented. It is a chance to gain new knowledge and to network. The meeting normally attracts 50-100 participants, mainly from Sweden but also from other parts of the world. All presentations are held in English.

The industry host, this year, is the research institute Swerim AB and there is an opportunity to learn more about their activities during the meeting.

Some highlights from the program:

  • Fredrik Gustavsson, Swerim, “Tribology at Swerim”
