Dornbirn MFC: Thanks to the sponsors
Along with its income from registration fees, the Dornbirn Man-made Fibers Congress relies largely on the support of such sponsors as industry, universities and colleges, and the technical press.
Long-standing sponsors such as the Province of Vorarlberg, Dornbirn City, Lenzing AG, CIRFS and IVC (Industrievereinigung Chemiefasern Deutschland) have for many years been actively supporting the Dornbirn-MFC, and the contributions of international specialized media have been growing steadily.
The new Congress Management headed by Friedrich Weninger has recently succeeded in recruiting additional sponsors: the Kunstuniversität Linz (University of Fine Arts and Industrial Design), the Plastics Cluster of the Lower Austrian Economic Agency, and the German Hahl/Pedex Group and Märkische Faser GmbH.
Papers by top-ranking international experts representative of academic research and industry make the Congress a unique event. Along with excellent plenary lectures and specialized papers, this years meeting will also feature a panel discussion with representatives of internationally renowned brands.
This year, some 100 expert papers will be presented, covering the following areas: Fiber and filament innovations, (bio-) polymers; Functionalisation and adaptation of fibers and surfaces; Nonwovens/Filtration; Environment and health; Advanced fiber and processing technology.
