The IIW-Colloquium – International Exchange of Young Scientists
What does industry want from future research work? At the 5th IIW Welding Research & Collaboration Colloquium of the International Institute of Welding, representatives of the automotive, aerospace and wind power sectors outlined their specific needs in terms of scientific developments.
