BF Technical Webinars Autumn/Winter 2016

September 19th, 2016. With some delay, I would like to draw attention to the next events of the training series BF Technology Webinars, offered by the BF Bundesverband Flachglas (German Federal Flat Glass Association). Basically, those webinars are open for everybody (but they are all in German language). Primarily, the webinars of this season focus on topics for beginners, whereas the next term in spring will provide webinars for deeper knowledge.

My contribution this time will be the webinar ‘Glasbruch – Teil I’ (Glass breakage – part 1), on November 29th, 2016. The date for my webinar about warm edge part 1 is already over, but in springtime 2017, more webinars will follow.

You can find the full webinar program of the present term including a description of their contents and the speakers and the online-application on the BF-websites here.
