The International Meeting for Chemistry Expoquimia hosted the UNPRECEDENTED Industrial Dialogues Webinars, seminars discussing different topics related to the cores of the triennial meeting: circular economy, digitalization, and technology transference. This last topic was covered in one webinar by Nora Ventosa, from the Molecular Nanoscience and Organic Materials (NANOMOL) group.
Expoquimia is an International exposition that takes place in the Fira de Barcelona with the objective of strengthening the chemistry sector. This year’s event has been postponed to next year, on 14-17 September 2021, so the organizers put together interesting online events to make up for this unfortunate situation.
INDUSTRIAL DIALOGUES happened during June 2020, covering different topics. It started with an inauguration lead by Carles Navarro, President of Expoquimia, Bernd Roegele, President of Equiplast, Giampiero Cortinovis, President of Eurosurfas, Pilar Navarro, Director of Expoquimia, Equiplast and Eurosurfas.
The second date was hosted by 3D Lab Project Director Ferran Fillat, from the Parc Taulí Hospital Universitari, who moderated a round table on "Flexible Fabrication. Finding answers to the sector’s challenges. COVID19 success cases".
On 4 June, NANOMOL researcher Nora Ventosa moderated the roundtable on the topic of technology transference both as a researcher and as part of the Expoquimia Organizing Comittee. The discussion will be focused on the topic “Creating tools to make innovation a reality. Science and Industry in Action”.
On 5 June, the round table was hosted by Alicia Martin from Plastics Europe, covering the topic “Celebrating Environment Day with success cases in the “new reality”. This discussion will close this event that hopes to bring industry leaders and researchers together.
