The Aerospace industry was one of the first to use carbon fibre in high volumes, and is still among the leading industries for innovations and new technologies.
Today in the Aerospace industry, carbon composites are a vital material for future success.
The two most prominent national networks in Switzerland, Carbon Composites Schweiz and the Swiss Aerospace Cluster, are joining forces for a forum featuring first-class speakers, exhibitors and networking partners.
