Events and Trade Fairs

To accelerate the transfer of our technologies into practice, we present our R&D activities at trade fairs. Furthermore, we organize seminars and workshops in-house or at our cooperation partners to demonstrate project results.

Details of our past events can be found here:


  • Munich / 03/12/2019 - 03/14/2019

    ICE europe | Fair

    At ICE europe in Munich, Fraunhofer IGB will show barrier coatings, oil, water, dirt or ice repellent coatings and biobased formulations for multifunctional coatings, which can also be produced in roll-to-roll processes.
