May '09
The EIHA Conference established itself as the biggest expert meeting on industrial hemp in Europe and also world-wide.

Experts from all over the world will meet each other in order to exchange information about the latest developments concerning hemp and other natural fibres. Topics are applications of fibres like composites, reinforced plastics, insulation materials, textiles. Other topics are applications of hemp shives (bedding, construction, particle boards) and hemp seeds/oil for human nutrition and body care.

Participants are experts from agriculture, industry and research and development. Industry means from SME to global players, e.g. machine producers, processors as well as plastic, construction and automotive industry. The Conference will take place in context of the International Year of Natural Fibres 2009 (www.naturalfibres2009.org).

The Conference language will be English.
