Continental Events & Programs


TWF 1st Annual Assembly and Conference on Welding and Allied Processes-Blue Print Africa will hold in Cairo, Egypt on march 14-17,2023. This event will link the worlds of academia, industry and government for an outstanding exchange of authoritative research, technical applications, and novel solutions to challenges of materials and materials joining both in Africa and the world at large. In addition, it will also be a showcase of Africa’s frontline champion companies in all stops in the materials manufacturing industries value chain of activities.    

The event will focus on all aspects of welding and its associated processes including inspection and structural integrity with the objective of improving the safety and performance of engineering structures and their associated materials. Through presentations of scientific research, plenary and technical sessions, programmed as well as impromptu discussions and an exhibition of today’s latest product and service solutions.

Members of Africa’s community of scientists, engineers, students and corporate organizations will not only gain useful knowledge and experience to advance their work, but also establish profitable linkages across the continent.

The presence of this Annual Assembly and Conference in Africa offers an opportunity like no other in the quest to develop and sustain cost effective progress in Africa’s manufacturing industries. The event is scheduled in Hybrid Format which enables both online and onsite participation. Online participation link is to be shared by end of February 2023.

TWF Workshop 5.0

TWF Capacity Building workshops are fast becoming the continent’s flagship program for guiding awareness and building capacity in welding technology towards growing manufacturing across Africa. The workshops are digitized and hosted by countries across regions in Africa.
At TWF workshops and symposiums, details on ongoing research are shared, proposals on research focus for the next generation, skilling models and methods to adequately address industry demands, policy directions to build national welding capacities, implementation structure to promote domestication of simple to complex manufacturing responsibilities, experiences from projects and approach to effective technical collaborations across member countries and shared.
Join the interactions and establish new alliances across the continent.
Presentations will focus on sharing experiences and technical details on how countries in Africa can effectively and efficiently grow national content in welding towards maximizing other industries.
