The Composites kenniskring+ was a big success. A group of almost 20 very interested lecturers and some students watched the presentation of Maurice Pelt on composites.

One of the most advanced commercial aircraft in the world, the Boeing 787, is made out of 52% of composites. Structural Health Monitoring, detection of damages in composites, can safe 30% of the current maintenance costs. Current research by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and University of Amsterdam is well worth the investment. At the end of the presentation, there was a lively discussion among both experts and inexperienced people. During the network drink, the discussions continued.
