As the XXXVI IULTCS Congress approaches (03-05 November 2021) the Africa Leather
and Leather Products Institute (ALLPI) is pleased to announce that there will be support
available to enable 20 leather (or associated subject) students to attend the congress
virtually. The support is being provided from a grant of US$2,000 that is being awarded
by IULTCS. President, Dr Luis Zugno, stated “Despite the current difficulties with travelling
it is vital that we encourage our future leather scientists and technologists to participate
in these prestigious events as both presenters and attendees. IULTCS has provided the
financial means for this to happen for 20 young people and I call on industry professionals
to ensure likely candidates are aware of this opportunity.”
To apply to attend, students should contact executive.director@allpi.int
