Virtual Coffee Breaks

Our aim is to transmit the character of a CIRP GA, where many friends and colleagues come together in a stimulating environment as part of our virtual CIRP GA. For this purpose, we have come up with the format of the Virtual Coffee break.

Before and after the lecture program, we offer open ZOOM discussion rooms that every participant can freely enter. These should enable the members and guests to get together for inspiring discussions besides the scientific programme.

If you have a possible topic for a discussion on technical, interdisciplinary, or social issues and want to take over a 30-minute time slot for a Virtual Coffee Break session, you are welcome to sign up by sending an e-mail to
