The COMBURA symposium is the major annual event for exchange of information on combustion research and its practical applications, in the Netherlands. It is an initiative of the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Vlamonderzoek NVV (Netherlands Association for Flame Research).
Participants from universities, research institutes, and industrial companies in the Netherlands and surrounding countries are invited. At the symposium, the latest developments and innovations in advanced combustion research will be presented, with the emphasis on the potential for application in industry. In addition, the symposium offers unique chances to expand and maintain your professional network.
COMBURA 2019 will take place on 9th October and 10th October 2019. The venue for this event will be the conference hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten in Soesterberg, which is located between the cities of Utrecht and Amersfoort.
