Our members are actively involved in the ongoing research roadmap and the status of the projects is frequently reported to our industry partners. Industrial reference groups guide the research and ensure the relevance of the projects, while the scientific quality is secured through the academic members. Together, we aim to further strengthen our position in key thermoplastic composite processing technologies. Our roadmap activities resulted in a leading position in thermoplastic composite manufacturing, as confirmed by the growing number of third party bilateral research projects. Various companies have found their way to TPRC for consultancy on product development and process optimization.
