Member Days

Member Days is an annual conference and meeting place in applied surface and colloid chemistry, open exclusively to YKI member companies.


The concept for Member Days is built on the conviction that member companies get value from having their own meeting place for surface chemistry, with opportunities for interaction between member companies and YKI staff. There should be a balance between talks from industry and academia, with plenty of opportunities to communicate and find new ideas to bring home to every member company.


Speakers at the event come from member companies, YKI’s global academic network and YKI. In addition to plenary talks on a general theme the event also includes technical talks in break-out sessions. Themes have been, Connecting Business & Science, From Invention to Innovation - Making Ideas Work, R&D in the Fast Lane, Global Reach - Strategic Needs, Open Innovation and Innovation Transfer.

An international event

The event is truly international 40 percent of participants from outside Sweden. Member Days will continue to be developed based on feedback from member companies.
