Save the dates for the 6th Young Tribological Researcher Symposium, which will take place from 24th and 25th of July 2023 at Engineering Design and CAD, University of Bayreuth, Germany.

Together, we want to enhance the transfer of knowledge within the field of tribology – from all points of view. The symposium’s focus is on:

» Presenting projects and theses of young researchers in academia and industryesearcher’s projects and theses

» Discussing new topics and ongoing research projects

» Providing an „exercise platform“ for major conferences

» Offering a stage for young scientists and young tribologists

You will have the possibility to exchange your knowledge with other young scientists and gain experience in presenting your research. Further-more, we offer advice regarding topics such as research methodology, testing possibilities, research presentation, or scientific writing.

Since the primary goal of the symposium is to promote young researchers, we are able to sponsor the conference and travel expenses of a few participants. If there is no possibility at your institute or company to cover these costs, please contact us at We would like to thank our sponsor Wolfgang Weinhold and Innowep GmbH for the support!

We are looking forward to your participation!
