EURADH2020 / 14-17 Sept. 2020 in Antibes (France)

EURADH is an international conference held every two years in Europe which aims at gathering researchers from University, Industry and Technical Centres to present and discuss the current state of progress in the field of adhesion.

As decided by the International Organizing Committee, the 13th European Adhesion Conference EURADH 2020 will take place in Antibes Juan-les-Pins (French Riviera) from 14 to 17 September 2020.

EURADH is organised by the French adhesion division (SFA) of the French Vacuum Society (SFV) with the support of the Dechema (Germany), the Society of Adhesion and Adhesives (UK), the Portuguese adhesion society, De Bond voor Materialenkennis (Netherlands), Grupo Espanol de Adhesion y Adhesivos (Spain) and the Italian community of adhesion.

This four-day event will bring together leading experts in adhesion science (chemistry, physics, mechanics, biology, interface durability...) and other professionals for exchanges through lectures and posters.

For the second edition, an innovation award funded by FEICA (Association of the European Adhesive and Sealant Industry) will be granted at EURADH 2020.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Antibes for EURADH 2020. Please save the date!
