23rd International Colloquium Tribology – 25-27 January 2022

Join the leading event on the topics of lubrication, additives and tribology in Europe. Our conference provides an international exchange forum for the industry and the academia. Leading university researchers present their latest findings, and representatives of the industry inspire scientists to develop new solutions.
Take advantage of the 2022 Conference & Exhibition to meet international customers and develop your network!

We are looking for YOU as a competent partner to contribute to the program with new ideas, current case studies and entertaining lectures.
Anyone interested in participating as a speaker is asked to submit their proposal by 31 May 2021:
