GPPS Montreal18

We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this conference was to bring together researchers in industry, academia, and governments to hear the latest developments in turbomachinery technologies. Our conference theme this year has been Emerging Technology for Power and Propulsion.


We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers provided in-depth insight into the current research and development within our industry. We also hope you benefited from the international networking and collaboration between all participants, exploring opportunities, and building trust relationships nationally and internationally.
