NATEX, the one day free workshop will take place on the 22nd of March 2011 and is hosted by the Institut of Natural Fibres and Medicinal Plants (INFMP) in the beautiful city of Poznan (Poland).

NATEX (Natural Aligned Fibres and Textiles for Use in Structural Composites Applications) is a European Research & Development funded project which aims to develop aligned textiles from natural fibres that are suitable for use as high‐strength reinforcing fabrics to produce structural composite materials and components.
For the validation of the new materials and processes, 4 case studies will be developed, by designing specific parts used for structural applications in four industrial sectors: transport systems (automotive), energy systems (housing for solar and thermal panels), agricultural systems (tractors) and shipbuilding (inside door).
