This seminar aims to bring together exponents of the leading local composite developers and users (current and prospective) to raise awareness on interesting technologies currently available and those being developed in Singapore (both in SIMTech and other organisations). The seminar will also highlight opportunities for collaboration to strengthen local capabilities in the field of composites.
Who Should Attend
This event is targeted at researchers, R & D Managers, engineers from the aerospace, defence, precision engineering, transportation industry and academia relevant to composite materials.
