Focused Technical Workshop: Carbon Fibre

Focused Technical Workshop: Carbon Fibre

Thursday, 29 April 2021 08:30 - 10:30

One of the great challenges at many facilities is to build stable frames in material that is both light and strong. On Thursday, 29 April 2021, you have the chance to learn about the facilities’ needs for carbon fibre and composite structures.

Technical experts from both ESS and CERN will be giving us an insight about the technical details in upcoming procurements.
