The year 2020 will be an anniversary year in three respects for the IKV - Institute for Plastics Processing in Industry and Craft at RWTH Aachen University: RWTH Aachen University celebrates its 150th anniversary, IKV will celebrate its 70th birthday and it will be the thirtieth time it stages the International Colloquium Plastics Technology – on 11 - 12 March 2020 in the Eurogress Aachen.

The day before the Colloquium, on 10 March, IKV will mark its anniversary by holding the International Symposium on Plastics Technology in the VIP area of the Tivoli soccer stadium.

While the IKV Colloquium will present the broad range of IKV research and will target primarily the plastics industry with its practice-oriented research, the Symposium will feature papers from scientists from 14 countries, and aims to arouse lively discussion between scientists and industry.

The main highlight of the Colloquium will be the plenary papers on the circular economy, digitalisation/Plastics Industry 4.0, and additive manufacturing. The research topics at the Colloquium will be covered in 15 lecture sessions, each consisting of two presentations from IKV scientists plus a keynote paper from an industry expert.

The topics of the Symposium, which will be held completely in English, also include the circular economy, Plastics Industry 4.0 and additive manufacturing but will also feature lightweight technologies, injection moulding and extrusion.

The head of the Institute, Professor Christian Hopmann, described the difference between the two events as follows: "At IKV we always have our sights on both science-oriented fundamental research and application-oriented research for industry. With our Symposium, we want to give space to fundamental research and have therefore asked scientists from all over the world to present their projects and discuss them with both science and industry."

The application-oriented research will become particularly clear at the Colloquium at the agenda item "IKV 360°". On the afternoon of the first day of the event, IKV will open its doors to participants of the Colloquium and will present its research live in the IKV pilot plants and laboratories. The scientists will be on hand at the up-and-running machines to answer any questions.

Another proven part of the Colloquium is the industry trade show in the foyer of the Eurogress Aachen, which offers exhibitors the possibility to present solutions for the plastics segment and talk to industry partners.

IKV is expecting exhibitors from the whole value chain: raw material producers, machine manufacturers, converters, providers of peripheral equipment and engineering services.

For the anniversary Colloquium – the 30th event in the 70th year of IKV – the Institute is again expecting around 800 specialists from the global plastics industry.
