Future Formulation

24 May 2017 10:00-17:30, Durham, United Kingdom

The UK has in recent years recognised the massive contribution which formulation makes to its economic activity. Resources have been made available both through the setting up of CPI’s (Centre for Process Innovation) National Formulation Centre in County Durham and specific funding calls from EPSRC and Innovate UK. This meeting will bring together some of the people who will shape future formulation having been awarded grants under the EPSRC's "Future Formulation of Complex Products" call.
