Registration is now open and the speaker line-up has been announced for the Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics (RISE) Conference, which is taking place virtually between 28–30 September.
The event is co-organised by the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), The Nonwovens Institute, and North Carolina State University. More than 150 professionals in product development, materials science, and new technologies are expected to attend the event online.
The discussions available to RISE attendees include:
- Sustainability in Material Inputs and End-of-Life Performance
- Government/NGO Challenges to Single-Use Plastics
- Market Intelligence and Economic Insights Post-Pandemic.
The programme includes presentations from industry leaders, round-table discussions and question-and-answer sessions on the key themes of material science developments for sustainable nonwovens, sustainability, increasing circularity in nonwovens, and promising innovations in nonwovens, processes and materials.
The conference will culminate on 30 September with the presentation of the 2021 RISE Innovation Award which recognises problem-solving innovations that advance the nonwovens industry. The Nonwovens Institute at North Carolina State University was last year’s winner for their spunbond high efficiency filter media.
The full RISE programme, speaker biographies and the latest speaker lineup is available on the RISE website.
