28th NDVaK

Decided climate targets and their implementation also pose new challenges for the industry. The first concrete measures, such as limiting global warming by 1.5 °C compared to the pre-industrial age and reducing the emission of climate-damaging greenhouse gases by 45% worldwide in this decade, were decided by the global community at the climate summit in Glasgow and included in the rulebook for the Paris climate agreement signed.

At the industrial level, there have long been intensive efforts to make processes more energy- and resource-efficient. Not only environmental policy requirements and laws, but also economic factors are a key driver for corresponding developments.

As part of the 28th NDVaK on October 5th and 6th, 2022 in Dresden, Germany, possibilities will be discussed as to how polymer materials and surfaces can contribute to shaping the energy transition and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.


The colloquium addresses natural scientists, material developers, engineers, technologists, coaters and system manufacturers as well as users of a wide variety of sensors on polymer materials and is of course also open to all surface-related topics of research, technology and system development around new or improved properties of polymer materials.

CREAVAC-Creative Vacuum Coating GmbH as organizer, the co-organizers Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research Dresden (IPF), European Research Society for Thin Coatings e.V. (EFDS) and German Research Society for Surface Treatment e.V. (DFO) as well as the program committee invite you!
