Advanced Biobased Materials and Composites Conference

The conference

In April 2020, the University of Portsmouth will host the second Advanced Biobased Composites for Engineering Applications Conference and the 5th Steering Committee Meeting of the EU Interreg funded project, FLOWER: Flax composites, LOW weight, End of life and Recycling.

Events will take place 1-3 April, with the one-day conference open to the public on Thursday 2 April 2020.

The FLOWER project

The objective of the four-year project is to develop flax fibre reinforced, high performance, lightweight, biodegradable or recyclable composite materials for use in mass-produced products from packaging to vehicles.

The project is examining the entire production cycle from the agricultural production of flax fibres (for example from date palm plants) to the research, development and commercialisation of end products.

There are eight organisations engaged in the project – 4 universities and 4 commercial partners – which began in February 2018 and will be completed in September 2022.

Why attend?

The main aim of the conference is to disseminate the findings of the FLOWER project.

The first FLOWER conference, which was held in Nantes (France) in 2019, also offered a unique opportunity for the composite and biocomposite communities from academia and industry to meet and exchange ideas.

The conference is free to attend, but booking is essential.
