Measurements at the Circular Materials Center (Kortrijk)
On 03.12.2021, project partner IMT Lille Douai carried out measurements in the Circular Materials Center as part of their research into optimizing a laser welding connection. KU Leuven is a partner in the Circular Material Center in Kortrijk.
Within the Athens project and within the framework of the PhD of Rowshni Jabeen (working at IMT Lille Douai), measurements on the thermal conductivity of plastics were performed on December 3, 2021. The C-Therm Trident appliance was used for this, which is currently located in the Circular material center in Kortrijk. These measurements fit within the cross-border collaboration of KU Leuven and IMT Lille Douai.
KU Leuven participated in the Adhesion 2022 conference that took place in the Technology & Innovation center of the University of Strathclyde's in Glasgow (UK).
On September 14-15, the '6ème colloque fibers naturelles et polymères' took place at the Center de Congress de l'Aube at Troyes. Here the work within the ATHENS project within KU Leuven in connection with characterizing the bio-fibre filled composites presented by means of a poster presentation.
On 09.09.2022, the start-up meeting of the Composites Material Group (CMG), a globally recognized center for composite materials research that was started in 1982, took place. Project results of the Athens project were shared via a poster presentation.
