SURCON - OCCA Centenary Conference 12-13th September, Leeds

12 September 2018 09:17 - 13 September 2018 09:17, Leeds, United Kingdom

OCCA celebrates its centenary year with a progressive and informative technical programme including speakers from academia and industry covering a range of science important to the surface coatings industry.

OCCA encourages links between academia and industry to develop lateral thinking for emerging technical and scientific discoveries. It is the mission of OCCA to promote this interaction to enable industry to achieve technical and commercial success recognised as best-in-class around the world. Enhancing the interface between academia and industry importantly encourages young professionals to take advantage of the diverse prospects for employment in sectors of critical national importance. Organised networking is a focus of this event.

The OCCA Centenary Conference will provide a forum and networking for scientists, engineers and technologists from academia, government laboratories and industry. Industrialists searching for the key scientific discovery to enable manufacture of differentiated coatings should attend. Attendees will present their findings, exchange ideas, share insights, make new friends and renew old acquaintances.

The Conference typically attracts over 100 attendees and covers 16 oral sessions over two days. Attendees to the conference will be practicing the research and formulation of paints, inks, adhesives, sealants and other surface coatings.

The Centenary Conference Dinner held on the evening of the first day will celebrate the achievements of OCCA and provide a backdrop for important networking between academia and industry. Every conference ticket includes entry to the dinner. Additional tickets are also available when ordering for guests.
