Future Formulation 3

4 April 2019 10:00-17:30, Leicester, United Kingdom

At Future Formulation 1 in Durham in 2017 , the grant holders told us about their plans, during Future Formulation 2 in Nottingham last year the grant holders and their teams told us about early progress, during Future Formulation 3 the emphasis will be on seeing some of the individual projects within these large grant through presentations setting the context for poster discussions, giving you the opportunity to learn about the latest formulation science.

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.
