SAMPE Benelux Spring meeting 2022 @ TPRC

It is our pleasure to bring you the program for the 2022 SAMPE BeNeLux Spring meeting. Two years ago, we already planned to visit TPRC, but we were forced to go virtual at that time. Now, we look forward to meet you live in Enschede! We start with a lecture program under the theme “Large Scale Manufacturing with Thermoplastic Composites” followed by a visit to the TPRC research center.

The detailed program and invitation can be downloaded here.
