Welcome to an inspiration day for ideas exchange on the path to build a competence centre for a sustainable surface treatment industry, SurfCenter. We welcome participants from industry, academia, institutes, and government agencies to participate.
During 2021, RISE initiated an effort to set-up a competence centre for a sustainable surface treatment industry: SurfCenter. The purpose with SurfCenter is to be a comprehensive effort to overcome the sustainability challenges (economical, social and ecological), faced by the surface treatment industry with a long-term perspective of ten years (starting 2024). By bringing together research institutes, universities, and companies (from OEMs to SMEs), SurfCenter will be a centre for excellent research focused on developing the best available technologies for rapid incorporation into production lines and looking over the entire life cycle of the processes at issue. More information can be found as downloadable documents lower in the page.
To build a competence centre is a large undertaking that requires a multidisciplinary group of people from companies and research organizations that can define a vision and a strategy for the centre. Therefore, we are inviting all interested parties to participate of the first planning workshop for SurfCenter to be held the 21st of April 2022, in Mölndal (see the information box for more details).
