The organisers of Dornbirn-GFC, an international manmade fibre conference, have announced that this year Dornbirn-GFC 2020 has been cancelled. Organisers stated that due to the impact of Covid-19 there will be no possibility to conduct the congress in its usual form this year. Travel restrictions and economic situation complicate the planning of events.
Further, as an alternative the organisers suggested that they will offer some lectures and discussions in the form of webinars from September 16-18, 2020 with a focus on these topics: opening with a keynote on Green Deal – implications for the textile Industry and the awarding of the Paul Schlack/Wilhelm Albrecht Prize; lectures and discussions on the topics: ‘leading polymer recycling technologies’, ‘smart, integrated, digital textile production chain’, ‘lessons learned from packaging – EPR schemes for textiles’ and ‘Circular Economy’.
Organisers are also planning lectures and discussions on the burning issue on PPE Production, a challenge for the industry.
Dornbirn-GFC 2021 will be held from September 15-17, 2021.
