On the first day, 15 October, a full-day training on the basics of UV/EB technology will be given by David Helsby, former RTE-president and industry veteran. He will provide a robust introduction to the chemistry, equipment, formulations, value chain and applications for newcomers to the technology.

RTE members pay 250€ for this unique training opportunity, while non-members pay 350€ per delegate. Registration is possible via the regular online registration form (see ‘visitor registration’ in the side menu).
