Ceramics, Metals and Surface Treatments ecosystems have been united during this event organized by “Pôle Européen de la Céramique » (also know as the European Cluster of Ceramics).

The European Cluster of Ceramics is certified “competitiveness cluster” by the French Government since 2005.  

It is the unique cluster dedicated to ceramics in France. It currently brings together more than 180 members (industrials, research and technological organizations, training centers), mainly located in France, but also abroad: Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium, Italy, etc.

Its mission is to boost the activity of the ceramics sector through innovation. Thus, it animates its network in order to promote its capacity to:

-          to innovate through active support for innovative and collaborative projects;
-          to grow through promotion and networking actions;
to develop in Europe and worldwide.
Ceramics 4 Industry was organized by the European Cluster of Ceramics. The event has taken place on 20th & 21st October 2021 near Limoges (France).

BtoB meetings, conferences organized in partnership with the A3TS - L'association de traitement thermique et de traitements de surface network and visits have supported the post COVID economic recovery, and have helped identify future partners. 

For people who were looking for ceramic solutions or who wanted to stay connected regarding ceramic innovations: they could initiate new contacts, identify technological and commercial partnerships to develop their business thanks to Ceramics 4 Industry. 

The 3 axis of this event were:

-          BtoB meetings, with a particular focus on NewSkin technologies, related to Ceramics and metal applications.
-          Conferences on « Ceramic / Metal assemblies ».
-          Visits to discover the ceramics ecosystem.
