The criteria for selection of papers will include:

  • Contribution to industry knowledge base – is this truly a significant advance?
  • Timely and relevant topic – does the presentation address current or developing concerns among polyurethane industry professionals?
  • Value – will the paper highlight real progress with long-term benefits?
  • Objective – does the proposed speech offer a balanced and non-commercial perspective?
  • Originality

According to the organiser, speech proposals that offer significant evidence-based developments in these respects have a far higher chance of being selected for inclusion on the programme. Speech proposals covering purely historical ground, with an overly narrow focus and those that are deemed too sales-driven in approach are likely to be rejected.

The following list of potential topics on likely aspects of interest should act as a guideline – in addition, please do use your knowledge of the industry to highlight the value that you consider your paper will offer to the high-level, technical specialist audience at Utech Europe 2021, said Crain.

  • Business Strategy
  • Materials
  • Processing
  • Design
  • Legislation and Regulation
  • Sustainability
  • Research, Development and Innovation

The organiser said it will look favourably on submissions which meet its criteria for novelty and utility in the following areas:

  • Flexible foam
  • Rigid foam
  • CASE - coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers
  • Polyurethane dispersions
  • 3D printing
  • Bio-based technologies
  • Blowing agents
  • Spray foam technologies
  • Flame retardants
  • Nano materials and their application in polyurethanes
  • Science of polyurethanes, additives and products
