OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.
Date: Friday 28th February 2020
Time: 18:00 – 18:00
Venue: ETCC will take place in Krakow, 2-4 September
The congress venue is Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University established in 1364. This historical city, known since the 7th century, is UNESCO World Heritage Centre and shows many historical facilities, buildings and museums.
Please submit the abstract of your presentation; lecture or poster.
Deadline for Abstract Submission is Friday 28th February 2020. Notification of abstract is 30th March 2020.
The ETCC2020 presentations will refer to the latest scientific and technical achievements for: paints, coatings, printing inks, construction materials, and adhesives
Topics of papers in this range include:
ETCC2020 is one of the most prestigious and most important technical and scientific events, creating a platform and a meeting point of industry and science, represented by companies, institutes and universities. During the three days of the event there will be plenary presentations and 3 – 4 parallel sessions, poster presentations, as well as an exhibition.
Experts representing the largest manufacturers, their suppliers, institutes, and universities across Europe as well as other countries worldwide, will be giving their presentations.
A seminar “European Summer-School Coatings and Colourants” with lectures dedicated especially for young scientists and students forms a part of the congress. Another remarkable plus point: The annual lecture meeting of the German Paint Chemists’ Association (GDCh, Division of Paint Chemistry) will be integrated into the ETCC Congress 2020, for the benefit of both individual events.
So the congress opens up great opportunities for international co-operation and of collecting unique knowledge about the newest materials, products, processing, equipment, research and testing. Those presentations will be published in journals, mainly such with a high impact factor.
Krakow is the leading centre of science and art, with 23 universities and 200,000 students. Krakow is very easily accessible by plane (flights from the majority of European Airports), motorways (at the crossing of West-East and North- South) and by trains. More and detailed information can be found at etcc2020.org
The congress has 70 years of tradition!. Since the year 1950 FATIPEC regularly organises scientific and technical congresses. In 2012, the existing traditional “FATIPEC Congress” was continued with the now well-known name “ETCC – European Technical Coatings Congress”. As FATIPEC took over the management of the Global Federation CSI – Coatings Societies International- it will support the involvement of specialists of our working area from around the world at ETCC2020.
