High-calibre keynote speakers will provide inspiration with the latest findings from their discipline at Partec, the international congress for particle technol-ogy to be held in Nuremberg in April. The Partec Executive Committee chaired by Professor Stefan Heinrich has now announced the keynote speakers and topics. Congress delegates can look forward to speakers from the USA, UK, Australia and Germany among others. The keynotes cover a wide range of topics and touch on areas of application like additive manufacturing or CO2 reduction. The theme of Partec 2019 is “Particles for a better life”. More than 500 scientists and researchers are expected to attend the English-language congress in Nuremberg.
As one of the world’s leading congresses for particle technology, Partec gathers the professional community in Nuremberg every three years. In almost all sectors of industry, the processing of powder and particles is an important process step, particularly for the production of foodstuffs, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. The findings of Partec researchers deliver improvements in many areas of our daily life. “Our congress theme ‘Particles for a better life’ underscores this key role played by particle research,” says Professor Stefan Heinrich, Chairman of Partec 2019. “In 2019, alongside traditional applications, we will also be focusing strongly on cutting-edge technologies e.g. from the life sciences, energy and environmental technology, or additive manufacturing. The congress will explore how particle technology can help these applications to progress.”
Supporting programme encourages new contacts, knowledge-sharing and networking
The Partec programme includes over 250 lectures and presentations. In its capacity as honorary sponsor of the congress, the VDI-GVC (Association of Process and Chemical Engineering) will also be awarding its Friedrich Löffler Prize for Young Scientists in Nuremberg. A poster exhibition and comprehensive supporting programme are a fitting complement to the international particle summit.
As well as the latest technical findings, Partec therefore also offers plenty of opportunities for networking and making new contacts from the scientific and industrial arenas. Numerous associations and educational establishments from all over the world support Partec as event partners. The event is sponsored by BASF, Beckman Coulter, LUM, Malvern Panalytical and Sympatec. Partec takes place at the same time as Powtech 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for the processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids.
