The 60th Dornbirn GFC Congress is being forced to take place virtually from September 15-17 this year, but the organisers believe attendees will be surprised by the highly interactive platform that is being prepared.

“Outstanding new ideas will create a live feeling during the congress, motivate networking and promote a unique learning experience,” says Friedrich Weninger, managing director of the Austrian Fibers Institute. “Top experts from industry and research will present the latest scientific results and ninety lecture slots have already been allocated, taking place in parallel in two lecture halls. Panel discussions, breakout sessions and virtual meeting lounges will provide opportunities for networking and information exchange.”

A virtual exhibition area with 25 exhibitors will also be offered.

In addition to its key focus on fibre innovations, the major themes of Dornbirn GFC 2021 will be sustainability and the circular economy, nonwovens and technical textiles and surface modifications and additives.
