The FORGE: Hybrid Conference on Particle Characterisation

23 March 2022 09:00 - 24 March 2022 13:00, Belfast, United Kingdom


The FORGE returns on March 23-24, 2022 – this time as a hybrid conference. You can either join us live in The MAC Theatre, Belfast, for the full in-person experience OR you can opt to join as an online attendee with access to the live Keynote sessions, the Making your formulation track, all recorded content and interactive networking opportunities.

PLEASE NOTE: virtual attendees will not have access to the Making your formulation or Understanding your formulation tracks.

Particle characterization for formulation

Particles play a crucial part in the technologies that enable the modern world to function - and particle characterization is key to understanding and optimizing these technologies. Of course, successful particle characterization means making the right measurement, at the right time, with the right tools. But how can you be sure what ‘right’ really looks like?

The theme of The FORGE 2022 is: making the right measurement at the right time.
We’re working hard to build a program featuring three tracks, with over 20 talks. The tracks will revolve around these three areas: 

  • Designing your formulation
  • Making your formulation
  • Understanding your formulation  

We hope to see YOU there.
