Changing Paradigms become Innovators

2010 will be the difficult way back into normal economy. We encounter a revolutionary change in our existing paradigms. Until now growth has been mainly linked to the cheap availability of fossil energy, whereas in our new global era economy and consumers will be faced with topics like environment, sustainability, careful use of resources and the development of the population. In future the Man-Made Fibers and Textile Industry as well their suppliers in the processing chain will be dominated by these factors, too.

Bionics as the Main Theme
The most sophisticated database in evolutionary know-how is stored in nature itself. Therefore the umbrella theme BIONICS can be found in many of the individual lectures of the 49th DORNBIRN-MFC taking place form 15-17 September 2010. Experts from industry and academic research will present in more than 100 lectures solutions and product for various end-uses an application-profiles.
