Here is what students and researchers at the Nonwovens Innovation Academy 2017 had to say about the event and their research 

The Nonwovens Innovation Academy 2017 welcomed 12 students and researchers. They presented academic posters in the networking area to the delegates and a jury of experts. If you are interested to receive a copy of the poster do contact us. 

If you are interested to submit a research poster for the next edition in 2022, check student grants & posters for more details.
