Workshop on nanotextured surfaces in Vienna POSTPONED

Nanotextured Surfaces with Nanocelluloses, -POSTPONED

Due to the recent developments (restrictions in place in Austria, international events being cancelled/rescheduled, e.g. ACS in USA) we will also cancel the planned participation in the exhibition of Specialty Paper2020 Europe and postpone the first NanoTextSurf workshop to take place later this year. We come back to the details later, stay tuned.

Curious about bringing about novel material properties and products with nanocellulose-based coatings? Join the workshop and find out.

VTT is coordinating the EU NanoTextSurf project that focuses on creating nanotextured surface applications based on nanocelluloses. NanoTextSurf is organizing a public workshop on 23 April in Vienna, Austria, right after the Specialty Papers Europe 2020 conference.

Project outcomes related to membrane and filter applications, textile demonstrations, novel friction pads, and barrier and abrasive material demonstrations will be presented and discussed. In the workshop, you will

  • Get information about production and characterization of durable surface treatment applications with nanocelluloses,
  • Hear talks from invited industry speakers,
  • See the developed materials live at an exhibition,
  • Get the possibility to discuss with experts.


POSTPONED- Specialty Papers Europe 2020 has been officially postponed. We are currently working to confirm new dates in 2020 and will provide you with updated information as soon as it becomes available!
