Complex Fluids in Manufacturing Workshop

Discuss the new challenges and applications involving complex fluids.

Complex Fluids in Manufacturing Workshop

  • Event date:
  • Posted on:

This workshop is organised by UCL ChemEng, MechEng, and Mathematics in collaboration with the British Society of Rheology (BSR), as part of the dissemination plan for the EPSRC Formulation grant CORAL: Complex ORAL health products: Characterisation, modelling and manufacturing challenges.

The event will serve as a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss challenges and applications of complex fluids.

As part of the workshop, we would like to offer the opportunity to young and ECR researchers to give one of the short (ten minutes) presentations. Presentations from researchers who won the Undergraduate Summer Research Awards from the BSR are particularly welcome. If you would like to present please register for the event and submit in the following link a proposed title, short abstract, and a short bio to link to your talk:

Slots are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, with the submission deadline on 31st March 2021.
