13th Paints Symposium

13th Paints Symposium



Research and Technology of Paints, Varnishes & Inks

Building a lasting Future

Venue: National Technical University of Athens


Extension of title and abstract submission until 11/11/2017.

The Scientific Division Paints-Varnishes-Inks of the Greek Chemists Association, in partnership with Materials Science and Engineering Department, School of Chemical Engineering, NTUA is issuing a Call for Papers to be presented at the 13th PAINTS SYMPOSIUM. This major technology forum for the coating industry, entitled “Research and Technology of Paints, Varnishes & Inks, Building a lasting Future” will take place on 15-16 March 2018 in Athens.

Innovative companies, experts from paint companies, raw material suppliers as well as academic / governmental research institutes, are kindly invited to submit abstracts detailing high-level technical contributions, presenting research results that highlight advancements important to coatings, as well as to printing inks, and Varnishes.

Important Deadlines

18th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling – ICMCF 2016

18th International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling – ICMCF 2016

 June 19-24, 2016 – Toulon, France


NTUA participated with oral and poster presentations in the unique workshop “Bridging the gap between academia and industry – A collaborative enterprise” that was held under the auspices of the 18th ICMCF in Toulon, co-organized by BYEFOULING and SEAFRONT EU funded projects, both challenging a wide spectrum of aspects related to marine fouling.

ICMCF highlights the cutting edge knowhow in understanding biofouling and corrosion in the marine environment. Academia and industry have been fruitfully collaborating together in the field of biofouling, aiming at pushing the boundaries and creating powerful team capable of driving innovation and economic growth and revenue. While moving forward, there needs to establish an open dialog and partnership between industry and academia, also taking into account relevant IP issues, that in order to understand and address pressing problems of the 21st century and securing a healthy and sustainable marine environment.

European Technical Coatings Congress (ETCC) 2016

European Technical Coatings Congress (ETCC) 2016

Advances in Coatings Science and Technology

For the first time, ETCC is being held in Britain alongside the UK’s leading coatings show, Surfex, which runs from 25th - 26th May in Hall 8 at the NEC, directly below the congress suites.

Birmingham proudly describes itself as the Heart of England, located in the centre of the country and steeped in history, culture, science and industry. With easy travel to nearby Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and the Malvern Hills. The NEC is the UK’s No 1 venue for exhibitions, conferences and concerts: superbly connected to Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station and with excellent hotels close by.

The congress is co-organised by The Oil and Colour Chemists‘ Association (OCCA) and the Federation of Associations of Technicians for Industry of Paints in European Countries (FATIPEC).

ETCC anticipates participation of some 300 manufacturers, raw material suppliers and academics.
