ECHT 2023 - European Conference on Heat Treatment 2023

Genova c/o Magazzini del Cotone 29/05/2023

ECHT 2023
Genoa - Italy, 29-31 May 2023
AIM is glad to announce the ECHT 2023 Conference, to be held in Genova, at Magazzini del Cotone, on 29-31 May 2023!
ECHT 2023 will cover all relevant topics for the Heat Treatment & Surface Engineering community. The Conference will have a special focus on SUSTAINAIBILITY!
Sustainability, with its three pillars - environmental, economic and social dimensions - is playing a keyrole to address the ongoing and future challenges. The metallurgical and mechanical industry are leading the way in creating a healthy development model for the environment and for the future generations. Presentations and papers from Industry, University and Research Centres on the topic will encourage the discussion and increase awareness on the matter.

We are looking forward to meeting you in the beautiful Genova!
