  • creation of a platform for exchange of scientific, technical knowledge and experiences dedicated for specialists and practitioners,
  • promotion of scientific and practical knowledge related to paints, varnishes, enamels and printing inks.


In 2014 the European Technical Coatings Congress ETCC 2014 took place from 3 - 5 September 2014 in Cologne, Germany. 

The theme of this ETCC 2014 congress was: "New Functions and Sustainability - Drivers for Future Coatings".

The congress had 486 participants, 6 invited lectures and 85 lectures in total. In an as well separate and permanently accessible poster session approximately 40 posters were presented.

ETCC 2014 was accompanied by a small exposition, which attracted many of the congress visitors. An interesting social programme attracted several congress participants: Visit of a typical brew-house as get-together on the first evening and a romantic boat cruise on river Rhine as social evening on the second day. The atmosphere of the congress was generally very comfortable and the feedback of the participants was very positive. Three awards were handed out to the award-winners during the closing ceremony of ETCC 2014.
