Short courses on different composites research topics will be organized as satellite event of the ECCM19 Conference in Nantes on Monday, June 22, 2020. The full-day courses are taught by highly regarded experts from academia. They cover a broad range of research topic areas. They will give to participants the opportunity to get an overview of some important aspects of composites : market and new trends, manufacturing processes, design, durability, damage, eco-friendly composites.

Short courses are offered to PhD and Master students registered at the ECCM19 Conference. All short course participants must be registered for the Conference, there is no additional fee to the conference registration cost.  Certificate of attendance will be provided to each participant.
