Tribology Days 2022

Luleå University of Technology welcomes the annual meeting "Tribology Days". This year, the event will be held at CEVT in Gothenburg 22-23 November 2022. The Tribology Days (Tribodays) are organized every autumn and attract participants from industry, academia and institutes who have an interest in tribology.

New methods, findings and discoveries are presented. The meeting provides good opportunities to learn new things and to network with others.

The meeting is always co-organized with a host from the industry and this year the event is held at CEVT in Gothenburg.

Please contact us if you would like to contribute to the event.
