    Abstract

    The Finnish Society for Tribology was founded in 1977 to promote the research, technical development and education of tribology in Finland. The society celebrated its 40 years existence by arranging an international commemorative seminar in the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas located in the former buildings of Finlayson factories in Tampere. The seminar was attended by 38 participants from four countries. The chairman of the society Helena Ronkainen from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd (VTT) opened the seminar and wished all participants welcome. Professor Kenneth Holmberg from VTT gave a historical review of the activities of the society and of the tribological research in Finland. Professor Roland Larsson treated in his presentation the influence of surface roughness and texturing on lubrication.
