Save the date for the Young Tribological Researcher Symposium, which will occur from 21th – 22nd of July 2020

With you together, we want to enhance the trans- fer of knowledge within the field of tribology – from all points of view.

The symposium’s focus is on:

» Presentation of young researcher’s projects and theses

» Discussing new research topics and ongoing research projects

» Providing an „exercise platform“ for major con- ferences

» Stage for young scientists and young tribolo- gists

You will have the possibility to exchange your know- ledge with other young scientists and gain experience in presenting your research. Furthermore, we offer advice regarding topics such as „technical pro- cedure/methodology“, „testing possibilities“ and „presentation of your research“.

We are looking forward to your participation!
