This Workshop will present the latest technologies and applications within the field of micro and nano moulding with presentations by speakers from industrial partners, research centers and universities.

The programme will be of interest to:

  • Engineers active on micro production development and micro product design
  • Researchers on micro/nano technology active in micro/nano injection moulding R&D projects
  • Micro and precision tooling companies
  • Medical and micro/mechanical companies
  • Companies developing and producing high precision plastic products
  • Universities and research centers with focus on micro/nano technologies

The workshop is organized within the dissemination activities and training for professionals of the European Project COTECH-Converging technologies for micro systems manufacturing. COTECH is a Large Scale Collaborative Project supported by the European Commission in the 7th Framework Programme (CP-IP 214491-2).

The workshop takes place at:
Nacka Strandsmässan,
Augustendalstorget 6,
131 52 Nacka Strand, Sweden
Meeting rooms Avance I and Avance II
