our first, fully virtual conference

As previously announced Euroturbo is constantly monitoring the evolving factors related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, particularly with regard to our 14th European Turbomachinery Conference to be held in Poland next spring.

The actual situation and the current negative outlook has definitely contributed to our decision to move ETC14 completely on-line, exactly during the same dates originally foreseen for the face-to-face event.

The Euroturbo Conference

The European Turbomachinery Conference (ETC) is organized by the European Turbomachinery Society (Euroturbo) and is held every two years in a different European city.

The 14th European Conference on Turbomachinery Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics (ETC 14) will be held in April 2021, beginning on Monday, April 12 and concluding on Friday, April 16.

According to the Covid Restriction we have decided to have it fully virtual under the organization of Local organizer in Gdansk (Poland).

The conference covers from a scientific and engineering perspective, the fluid dynamics and thermodynamics of turbomachines, as well as of turbomachinery based propulsion systems and power systems.

The first conference was held in Erlanden (Germany) in 1995 with 58 papers and 155 attendees. This year we have more then 110 papers and we are expecting over 200 attendees despite the less appealing of the on line Conference.
