Check out the Global Fluid Power Society

GFPS-logoThe Global Fluid Power Society (GFPS) is a worldwide community of institutes for networking in the area of fluid power and fluid techniques.

Formed in 2016, the GFPS is a merger of two organizations: Fluid Power Net International (FPNI) and the Network of Fluid Power Centres of Europe (FPCE).

The main goal was to form a unique entity independent of a continent, which could inherit the spirit and the experience of both FPNI and FPCE, and that will be recognized as the main reference for the international fluid power community including academia and industry

GFPS’s general objectives are to:

 - Bring people of the fluid power community “together”

 - Provide information about fluid power developments and publications

 - Strengthen the standing of fluid power and fluid techniques in industry and academia

 - Promote fluid power and fluid techniques as scientific/technical discipline

 - Promote collaborative projects and provide information about expertise in the field of fluid power technology

 - Promote the exchange of students and researchers among fluid power institutions

GFPS publishes the International Journal of Fluid Power and provides literature information on Fluid Power. An important aspect of GFPS is technology transfer via Workshops, Conferences and Forums.

The Global Fluid Power Society operates as a Non Profit Corporation, registered in the United States. Click here for more information on GFPS. You can also find them on Facebook and LinkedIn.
