The European Ceramic Days, the preeminent policy event for Europe’s ceramic manufacturers, took place from Tuesday 21 November until Wednesday 22 November. Although the Cerame-Unie General Assembly and sectoral meetings were reserved for members, the  public conference on 22 November was  open to the public.


The conference on the current trends in research & innovation in ceramics at European level, reviewed the progress made over the last years under Horizon 2020 and discussed the key obstacles to increase cooperation in a sector with great potential for innovation but largely composed of SMEs.  The conference was moderated by Peter Woodward  and explored this topic with a focus on resource & CO2/energy efficiency and digitalization & advanced technologies.
