Copper Alloys 2022

Düsseldorf, Germany November, 2022

Scientific conference on copper materials

Copper alloys 2020 in Dusseldorf, Germany has been moved forward to November 2022. We regret this, but in the current time we have come to the conclusion that this is the best for the conference and its participants. /Organization committee

International arena for scientific and technical development –
forum for copper alloys industries, universities and research institutions
As a follow up to the Copper Alloys 2018 conference in Milan, Copper Alloys 2020 aims to strengthen the copper and copper alloys community further by providing a biennial international forum for scientific presentations and information exchange.

Technical developments have always caused societal change, while conversely, societal change can drive the need for technical developments, (new) materials and production improvements. Although catch phrases such as sustainable production, resource efficiency and circular economy are often marketed to the broader public as “new philosophies,” it is often necessity, rather than philosophy, that drives and directs research and development.

Today, however, increasing public awareness and a series of global megatrends do force universities, research institutes and market players to strengthen their efforts. The evolving materials research and development platforms put high demands on optimizing and complementing processing methods, closing gaps in global material flows and implementing loss-free recycling technologies.

Copper Alloys 2020 will give a comprehensive look at challenges and
developments of copper user industries. Workshops will allow aInvitaionctive sharing of knowledge and opinions in the field of materials and processing.
