Communicating the future of man-made fibres
The 53rd Dornbirn Man-made Congress (DORNBIRN-MFC) is setting new accents in a globalised world where the communication network is accelerating and intensifying enormously any changes and cycles. These challenges in the field of finance and economy are becoming the decisive factors for success of the European man-made fibre industry. They influence the rhythm of innovation (time to market), the efficiency (resources, consumption of raw materials, energy, sustainability, recycling etc.) and the competitiveness (price per unit, USPs). This will lead to new systems of interdisciplinary cooperation. Life cycle analyses of the whole processing chain will gain momentum.
The plenary session on the opening day will start with a presentation of Weninger, Presisent of the Austrian Man-Made Fibers Institute, followed by welcome addresses of the province of Vorarlberg, a lecture of CIRFS/Brussels on the topic of ¨The European Man-made Fibres Industry Global Challenges and Institutional Changes¨. Afterwards the Paul Schlack/Wilhelm Albrecht Prize will be awarded. Additional topics enlarge the advance in knowledge
With some 100 lectures experts we are trying to deliver in 2.5 days an overview about the diversity of the man-made fibres world. Due to the high quality of the lectures it is practically impossible to present all of them in a condensed form. For a precise picture we kindly ask the participants to consult our programme folder or our homepage www.dornbirn-mfc.com (where last minute changes will be displayed as well).
