September 20, 2021 - September 22, 2021
After a successful pro flex 2019, we are delighted to announce the date of pro flex 2021 and to invite you to a highly interesting conference!
Roll-to-roll processing and coating of flexible materials like polymer films, metal foils, ultra-thin glass, membranes, and textiles is a growing industry and an essential process step in the production of a wide variety of important industrial products, like packaging films, solar control window films, batteries and capacitors, as well as photovoltaic and lighting modules.
From September 21 – 22, 2021, a colorful conference program on current issues in research and practice of roll-to-roll technology awaits you. For the second time, the conference program is complemented by an afternoon tutorial on roll-to-roll technologies on September 20.
For a deeper insight, we have prepared a list of presentations which were held at the previous pro flex conferences.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com
We are looking forward to your participation in pro flex 2021.

|14.00 – 15.30||Tutorial Session 1|
|15.30 – 16.00||Coffee Break|
|16.00 – 17.00||Tutorial Session 2|
Tuesday, September 21 | DAY 1
|17.30 – 21.30||Get together and Dinner at Fraunhofer FEP or online|
Wednesday, September 22 | DAY 2
|15.00 – 16.00||Lab Tour|
The pro flex 2021 and the tutorial will be taking place online as well as on-site at the Fraunhofer FEP in Dresden on terms that it agrees with the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Through our online format we will be able to extend our community regardless of health issues or travel restrictions, but every online participant will still get the full pro flex experience. During the breaks we will provide small discussion groups to connect the online participants with the participants on-site. Furthermore, you will be able to take part in our interactive online lab tour and to use the opportunity to look behind the scenes.
Participants on-site can expect the highest possible safety standard to enjoy the conference and lab tour without worries. The on-site participation includes our traditional evening get-together in a pleasant atmosphere. Additional to the face-to-face discussions, you will be able to connect with the online participants.
The aim of the tutorial is to give you an overview of important aspects and technologies of the field of work "roll-to-roll" technologies. The scheduled topics are:
