SCT 2020 - Steels in Cars and Trucks POSTPONED !!

SCT 2021 - the most important international Conference on Steels in Cars and Trucks takes place in Milan, Italy (January 10 - 14, 2021).

More than 500 participants from all over the world will visit Milan, Italy to join more than 160 presentations from industry and research.

‘Bringing the automotive, supplier and steel industries together’ is one of the two goals behind SCT 2021. This motto reinforces what the modern steel industry is all about: partnerships across value chains being made up of industry, research and development professionals.

The second motto of SCT 2021 is: ‘Future trends in steel development, processing technologies and applications’. The ability to steadily innovate one of the traditional and most innovative materials for industrial use is reflected in the increasing amount of steel being consumed across the world. Steel delivers a lot of solutions for solving such future global challenges as living and mobility in megacities or the preservation of material resources due to steel’s excellent possibilities for recycling.

Covid-19 – Status

SCT Steels in Cars and Trucks - postponed to  10-14 January, 2021 

In consultation with doctors, responsible people, the organizing committee and sponsors, we have decided to postpone the SCT Steels in Cars and Trucks  to the date of 10 - 14 January, 2021 in the same location: we are confident that there will no longer be any dangers or restrictions in Milan by that time from the coronavirus.

We are aware of the inconvenience for everyone involved and apologize for this, but health and safety have to be our highest priority.

We, at TEMA, are committed to your success – and are excited about putting together what we hope will be another successful conference.  

We look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to Milan in the new year.
