Annual Event : Smart Composites for a better world

Brussels, Press Club  |  24 - 24 OCT 2018


The combination of the structural performance and design flexibility of composite materials with miniaturised electronics technologies opens up new possibilities for the manufacture of multi-functional components. From sensing and diagnostics, to human/machine interfaces, to energy harvesting, the potential for a new generation of smart composites is vast. EuCIA's annual seminar, Smart Composites for a Better World, will explore the opportunities offered by this emerging market.
