14th Coatings Science International 2018 – together with ETCC 2018
"The Leading European Conference on Coatings Science & Technology"
Welcome to The Leading European Conference on Coatings Science & Technology.
This conference is intended for researchers and research managers, active in the field of Science and Technology of Coatings both from industry and academia. Polymer, material and paint chemists, as well as surface and interface scientists, formulators, designers and industry policy makers will find in this conference a broad platform for combining and exchanging the latest developments of their disciplines. The conference is especially attractive to those who appreciate in-depth presentations and discussions on a high-quality standard
Where other Conferences primarily try to reach a broad public and focus on commercial applications of new technologies, this Conference intends to focus on the scientific backgrounds of the newest technological developments relevant to Coatings. Typically we gather in Noordwijk, a small Dutch town at North Sea side, during the last week of June and with a maximum of 120 participants. Coatings Science International breathes the atmosphere of a Gordon-type conference, reminiscent of the famous Athens Conferences (1974-2003). High-quality speakers, ample time for scientific discussions, and every opportunity to establish rewarding contacts are Conference values we want to uphold.
2018 will be an exceptional year for CoSi. We will join forces with the Federation of Associations of Technicians for Industry of Paints in European Countries (FATIPEC) and The Oil & Colour Chemists’ Association (OCCA) to organize a bigger event on Coatings, the European Technical Coatings Congress, ETCC 2018, which was settled to take place in Amsterdam, in the last week of June.
It will bring together all knowledge, from all over the world, about the latest developments in paint, paint raw materials and related topics, as well as, the most recent progress in coatings science and technology. This offers a very interesting platform to merge technicians and scientists, active in the world of coatings: raw materials suppliers, coatings companies, universities and research institutes. This merge may cross-fertilize new ideas and solutions for old problems, current challenges and future innovations!
ETCC 2018, will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 26 – 29 June 2018. Join us there!
