21 - 22 mar, Gothenburg

KME-HTC Research Symposium 2017

This joint event for the two research programmes KME and HTC will be held at the west coast of Sweden. The Symposium programme will cover research on materials technology, high temperature corrosion, fatigue and mechanical properties, as well as other issues related to materials at high temperatures.

In addition to talks by the researchers in HTC and KME, Professor John Nicholls, Cranfield University, Cranfield UK and Dr. Mathias Galetz, DECHEMA, Frankfurt, Germany are invited to talk. In addition to the oral presentations, there will be a poster session.

The symposium is intended for employees at member companies and researchers from universities and institutes taking part in the HTC and in the KME programme. The symposium will be held March 21-22 at Lindholmen conference centre in Gothenburg.
