A widespread application of thermoplastic composites requires skilled engineers. TPRC is well positioned to provide the needed training and education due to its state-of-the-art lab facilities and the support from its academic partners. As an example, we provide an introductory course on the processing and properties of thermoplastic composites. The two-day course, including theoretical and practical work, is hosted twice per year for both members and non-members. The hands-on practical work on fiber placement and stamp forming under guidance of TPRC experts forms the highlight of the course. Next to this generic introduction course, more advanced courses on specific topics are available upon request.

Knowledge transfer is also promoted via interactive workshops on selected topics. We organize these to bring together industry and academia in order to enable the valorization of scientific research and to boost industrial innovation. The workshops may have a generic nature or be tailored to specific materials, processes or properties. Our workshop on overmolding, for example, was specifically successful as it resulted in a roadmap research project with participation of external parties from both the automotive and aerospace industry. Interested in our workshops? Feel free to visit our website and check the schedule.
