The 20th European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM20)
Four years after the previous event, the European Conference on Composite Materials celebrates its 20th edition in June 2022. The event is organized by the Composite Construction laboratory (CCLab) and the Laboratory for Processing of Advanced Composites (LPAC) of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
ECCM brings together participants from academia and industry who share an interest in Composite Materials . This well-known conference series is the European forum for knowledge exchange on the recent accomplishments and the future trends in Composite Materials. ECCM has consistently drawn interest and participants from around the world. It is a meeting point for composite specialists and newcomers alike and has long been a venue where researchers and industrialists meet and establish long-lasting collaborations.
The Conference Theme this year is “Composites meet Sustainability”. All usual topics of ECCM related to composite materials will of course be present (see Topics section); however, sustainability aspects will be highlighted with specific lectures, roundtables and sessions on a range of topics, from bio-based composites to energy efficiency in materials production and use phases, as well as end-of-life scenarios and recycling.
