Focus on Materials of the future

Published: 23 May 2018

How can cars become lighter? How can the manufacturing process of vehicles become more energy-efficient? One possible solution is an increased use of composites – materials that are light and strong. Next week, researchers from 30 countries gather in Luleå for the international conference on Flow Processing in Composite Materials.

The 14th International Conference on Flow Processing in Composite Materials (FPCM-14) will take place 30th May – 1st of June 2018 at Kulturens Hus in Luleå, Sweden.

The conference is arranged by Luleå University of Technology and Swerea SICOMP AB. FPCM-14 is part of a series of conferences covering the science and engineering of composites manufacturing. It is a forum for scientists, engineers and designers from academia and industry to exchange ideas, propose new solutions and promote international collaboration.

The coming conference will cover topics from the challenges of graphene as a reinforcement to large-scale processing for composites with complex structures.

– I'm glad that we can gather researchers from around the world to discuss these issues in Luleå, says professor Staffan Lundström.
