The conference will be preceded by the free-to-attend UK EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Hub Open Day on Tuesday 13 September 2022. The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub is pleased to invite you to attend our fourth annual open day on Tuesday 13 September 2022 at the University of Sheffield, The Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). This free-to-attend, in-person event will cover a range of Hub projects and provide Hub partners with the opportunity to highlight research progress to date, and showcase project outputs.


Current PhD students and researchers will present their high quality and diverse composites research through a poster session.

The Open day will be supported by SAMPE UK and Ireland, who will host a Young Engineers Competition, where students will be invited to participate in a ‘Design and Make’ Competition which will be judged on the day and prizes awarded to the winning team.

The event will be a great opportunity for those across the composites manufacturing supply chain to learn more about the Hub’s latest research and how they can contribute to the Hub’s development and expansion and the opportunities available.

The open day will close with an evening dinner reception at The Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria Hotel, Sheffield and all delegates are invited to attend. Further details on this can be found on upon registration.
