7TH IIW WELDING RESEARCH AND COLLABORATION COLLOQUIUM 2017
The 7th IIW Welding Research & Collaboration Colloquium will be held at TWI Ltd, near Cambridge, UK. The event will bring together representatives from local and global industry and research to exchange ideas and establish cooperative networks for future communication and development.
The industrial and scientific research needs will be introduced by keynote speakers who are acknowledged experts in the following strategic technological fields: Additive manufacture, smart manufacturing (Industry 4.0), nuclear and energy.
Speakers are invited from industry and academia to present and discuss their work with an emphasis on cooperation in welding research, new methodologies, techniques, best practice and new challenges for welding and joining research in the technological fields addressed in this colloquium. This presents an opportunity to exchange ideas and strengthen collaboration between industry, established research groups and young engineers.
Presentations on the UK National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) based at TWI will be given. Students will be invited for a poster session and presentations on the selected topics. There will also be an opportunity to visit TWI’s laboratories for welding research and testing.
These colloquia are an initiative of the IIW Study Group Research Strategy and Collaboration (SG-RES). Chaired by Prof Americo Scotti from Brazil. SG-RES has the key objective to analyse he growth of welding research around the world. At regular meetings, critical feedback is collected regarding how topics of industrial interest, and support for research in welding and allied techniques, are progressing in the participants’ countries and strategies for future development are generated.
