Kindly invited to visit us at the International Industry Fair, which will take place from 18th April to 21st April, 2023 in Celje. The last day of the fair, Friday, 21st April, 2023, will be dedicated to the plastics industry, where the Faculty of Polymer Technology and GIZ Grozd Plasttehnika will act as organizers of the central event. The event will be held under the slogan "Innovative technologies in the plastics industry". The interlocutors will talk about the topics of innovative processing technologies, the use of Hololens technology in practice, the presentation of educational opportunities at free workshops in Slovenia and abroad, additive technology and duroplast recycling. The event will also be an excellent opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas. There will also be enough time for your questions and conversations between individual sets of lectures.
