Workshop “Roll-to-Roll Technologies – Get ready for future challenges”

Building further on last year’s event “Roll-to-Roll Technologies at Work – for functionalized surfaces”, for which more than 180 people from 25 countries registered, R2R NET is now organising an interactive workshop to discuss the answers that roll-to-roll technologies can bring to current societal challenges:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emission
  • improve resource efficiency
  • towards green chemistry

If you want to learn about

  • the state of the art in surface technology for flexible materials
  • the latest versions of equipment for highly efficient surface treatment of roll materials
  • new opportunities for scale-up and pilot production for surface treatment of roll material
  • how leading companies use roll-to-roll technologies
  • R2R NET

or you want to interact with scientific and industrial experts in the field

then do not hesitate to register to the R2R NET workshop
“Roll-to-Roll Technologies – Get ready for future challenges”.

Please register before September 5, 2022.
Participation fee: € 350. (for network members € 200)

The workshops will be started with an impulse presentation setting the frame. After that, there will be time for discussions between experts and questions as well as comments and contributions from the participants. During the workshop, the R2R NET members will show short image movies during the breaks & introduce themselves in an exhibition area.

There will be catering during the breaks.


The Fraunhofer Conference Centre is located in the Potsdam Science Park.

There are direct local train connections from the Berlin Main Railway Station (Hauptbahnhof) and the Berlin Airport to the station Potsdam-Golm.
