PPE'17 and UK-China AMRI meeting

25 Jul 2017 - 27 Jul 2017

Polymer Process Engineering'17 aims to:

• Provide a timely forum for presentation & discussion of key developments in engineering excellence in polymer processing and asssociated advanced materials for healthcare; 

• Cover leading edge developments in precision polymer processing technology, in-process measurements and process flow modelling, and control;

• Provide a technical focus for the processing and technology industries;

• Reflect developments in Advanced Materials in Healthcare and Medical Devices

What is the scope?

Our themes are Precision processing technologies and materials, including Polymer Micro and Nano Technology, Advanced Materials for Healthcare, and Science to Commercialisation. Polymer processing technology and its outworkings in commercial and novel areas is a key feature of this conference.

Who should attend?

Industrial and academic engineers, managers and scientists in the plastics industry and related areas will all find much to their benefit in this conference. The emphasis is upon first class engineering and the application of science - purely commercial and marketing presentations are excluded. An excellent range of high quality speakers from various countries will represent the major industrial and academic thrusts in polymer processing. We warmly welcome all delegates. Delegates will be able to participate in the conference sessions and discussions. A softbound book of conference papers will be published, and available after the conference.

This event has been recognised by the IOM3 for CPD: Continuing Professional Development is the systematic maintenance, improvement & broadening of knowledge & skill, & the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional, managerial and technical duties throughout the practitioner's working life.

The link with China is long-standing and very high level – typically attracts leading researchers and senior people (Vice Presidents); PPE brings in leading industrialists in our sector.    The programme will also again involve the EPSRC MeDe Innovation Centre.  These are prestigious meetings, and will attract very significant external speakers and delegates.  The event will have two days of PPE’17 with a strongly applied flavour, overlapping with 2 days of UK-China AMRI, where the final afternoon is Workshop style. In addition to extensive technical presentations, we’ll have posters, an Exhibition, laboratory/commercial demonstrations, and early career researcher activity, plus the opening of our new Characterisation laboratories (to include the Anton Paar SAXSspace, the TEM and process spectroscopy facilities in adjacent rooms).
