About this Event

The 14th International Wool Research Conference

***Announcement: Conference postponed to March 2021

In light of the current situation with regard to Covid-19 we have decided to postpone the conference to the 24th -26th of March 2021. We are still very excited about hosting the conference, and we want it to be as easy as it can be for people in the international science community to travel to New Zealand. We feel that it is better to make this decision as early as possible so that you don’t have try and decide about your participation while the global situation is so uncertain. Our thoughts are with all of our wool and fibre research friends and colleagues around the world in what are such difficult times. This postponement makes us look forward with even greater anticipation to welcoming you to Hanmer Springs in March 2021.

With that in mind we plan to release a call for abstracts in the near future, so keep checking back for more information. Also, we’d love to hear from you with any questions or feedback at IWRC20@agresearch.co.nz.

2021 continues the legacy of the most important forum for sharing the latest scientific research about wool proteins, fibres and textiles, including other natural fibres and human hair. Global trends towards health, wellbeing and sustainable products/processing will feature as important themes.

*More information including a programme outline will be available here shortly.

IWRC 2021 will be held in the beautiful Alpine village of Hanmer Springs.
