Brochure celebrating 50 years DORNBIRN-MFC - Austrian Man-Made Fibers Institute (Austrian-MFI)

The 1st DORNBIRN MAN-MADE FIBERS CONGRESS (DORNBIRN-MFC) was held from the 16th to the 19th of July 1962 under the leitmotiv “Man-made Fibers today and tomorrow. In view of the 5th anniversary a brochure will be published, providing an overview of the history of the congress, its founders, long-term supporters and sponsors and people who have accompanied our way. It will also illustrate the evolutionary change, the idea and mission of a communication platform for innovations in the field of man-made fibers and process technology, between fiber industry, the whole processing chain, machine and auxiliaries' manufacturers and academic research.

New topic “Visionaries”

The individual lectures on the topics: New Developments in Fibers, Functional Textiles, Sustainability, Fibers for Technical Textiles, Sustainability, Finishing and EU Research Projects will include some 15 lectures of so called “Visionaries”. These reknown lecturers are Top Representatives/Decision Takers/Opinion Leaders from (fiber) industry and academic research who are going to present within their high-tech strategy future projects for the coming 10 to 15 years.

The global challenges will be transformed in fields of requirements (e.g. health, mobility, safety, communication, emotion etc) and the driving key technologies for the development of new products, processes and services will be defined. The required future profiles of man-made fibers will be defined in lectures by leading companies working in the textile processing chain like home textiles, garments and sports/leisurewear. High ranking representatives from international roof organisations of the fiber-making industry will explain their key activities in the development of world-wide and regional man-made fiber production.

Successful forum discussion will be continued

In view of the positive reaction and vivid participation of our visitors we are going to repeat a forum discussion on Thursday 15th September 2011, starting at 17.35. This time there will not be any lectures in parallel in order to better exploit the existing potential.
