All DECOAT partners have gathered once again for its M47 Consortium Meeting to provide project updates and formulate plans for the last stretch of the project in 2023. The meeting was held on 24-25 November 2022 in CTAG – Automotive Technology Centre of Galicia located in Vigo, Spain. Each running work package presented accomplishments and milestones and the remaining deliverables and its corresponding timelines to complete the project. A short tour was conducted showcasing CTAG’s state of the art technologies, initiatives and outstanding contributions to the automotive industry. 


Reaching towards its end, DECOAT is inevitably showing promising results that will be presented during its final event at the European Coatings Show (ECS) on 27-28 March 2023 in Nuremberg, Germany. Samples and demonstrators will be displayed at the DECOAT booth where experts will be available to attend to all queries from guests and participants.
