We are co-organizing a Trade Mission with Composites United in Switzerland!

In 2019, we started to deepen our collaboration with Composites United in Switzerland with a Trade Mission of a delegation from Switzerland to Sweden.
In 2021, the same partnership is organizing a Trade Mission of a Swedish delegation to Switzerland, to visit further Swiss companies and institutions within the framework of the SWII Conference.
