FPInnovations’ much anticipated hands-on Applied Tissue Course scheduled for May 12-13 has been rescheduled for October 27-28 due to the health concerns caused by Covid-19.
The Applied Tissue Course will take place at FPInnovations’ Montreal location. Due to the hands-on demonstrations and workshop nature of the course, FPInnovations decided it would be in the best interest of the health and safety of attendees and instructors to delay the course until the fall.
“We’re very disappointed to have to announce the postponement of the Applied Tissue Course, but it’s the wisest action to take for the sake of all our participants, employees and business partners who will be attending and giving the course,” said FPInnovations pulp and paper industry sector leader, Stéphan Larivière. “We are living through unprecedented times,” he added.
The course will provide a comprehensive understanding of tissue properties and tissue manufacturing. The course is offered in collaboration with tissue partners Cristini, Fabio-Perini, Kadant, Solenis, and Toscotec.
