 LUBMAT 2018

SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

Working Groups (WGs)

Working Groups are set up by the Steering Committee to take up specific ‘time-limited’ activities with clear deliverables related to the work of the Group. Working-group membership is open to any stakeholder or individual experts who can make a useful contribution. Each Working Group consists of experts in the relevant field. The WGs chairmen are members of the Steering Committee.

At present, seven WGs have been established to develop R&D priorities and strategy for the EU covering:

  • "Current status/value to the EU"
  • "SWOT analysis"
  • "Drivers"
  • "R&D needs"
  • "Barriers"
  • "Recommendations"

These Groups form the basis on which EuMaT recommendations to the EU are being made in order to provide input into the FP Work Programmes.  

The current WGs are: 

WG 1: Modelling and Multiscale
Chair: Amaya Igartua (Techniker)

WG 2: Materials for Energy
Chair: John Oakey (Cranfield University)

WG 3: Nanomaterials and Nano-Assembled Materials
