Composite Technology Seminar
– Establishment of National Composite Center in the U.K and Japan–
Organizer: Chubu Aerospace Technology Center (C-ASTEC), Co-organizers: British Embassy in Japan, and Greater Nagoya Initiative Center (GNIC), Nagoya University will hold the Composite Technology Seminar – Establishment of National Composite Centers in the U.K and Japan.
While practical use of a carbon fiber composite material in the Aerospace industry is widely adopted, the use of the material in various fields including automotive industry is expected. Meanwhile, in August 2011the National Composite Center is established near the University of Bristol, the United Kingdom, and with the industry-university-government cooperation such as AIRBUS, Rolls-Royce, GKM and University of Bristol, the efforts towards improvement of technical standard in the composite material has been made.
Speakers at the seminar will be Prof. Michael Wisnom from the University of Bristol and Prof. Kevin Potter of the Advanced Composite Center for Innovation & Science (ACCIS) who will give us an introduction on the Establishment of the Advanced Composite Center for Innovation & Science (ACCIS) in the United Kingdom.
In addition, Mr. Masayuki KIYAMA, Chief, Next Generation Division, Chubu Bureau, Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, will give an outline on the Establishment of the National Composite Center in Japan; the announcement was made on July 2011 that the Nagoya University will operate the center.
Related organizations in the Greater Nagoya hope that Composite Technology Seminar can provide useful and effective information for people who are involved in research and development of composite materials.
