Review – Technical centre tours

Research live – Technical centre tour

More than just a tour of the institute.

At the technical centre tour, IKV will present its latest research and development highlights in the institutes’ pilot plants and laboratories. The conference delegates will have an opportunity to talk to the IKV research staff while the machines and testing equipment are up and running.
