Due to the vast interest from industry and trade and the strong support of the EU Commission, Circular Economy is a focal point this year again. © Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress 2018 will present over 100 high-quality lectures from academic research and industry, when it opens its doors from 12-14 September 2018 to around 700 participants from 30 nations.

The congress has grown to become a “global brand” in recent years, promoting internationalisation, yet maintaining its European roots. A new rebranding initiative will to support this effort, according to the organisers. The event is now called Dornbirn-GFC – Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress, a change from the original Dornbirn-MFC – Dornbirn Man-Made Fiber Congress.
