RSC Surface Coatings Conference - Sustainable Coatings

10 January 2023 09:00-17:00, York , United Kingdom

This one day meeting aims to highlight the importance of sustainable materials, methods and products used for coatings. It is intended to appeal to industrialists looking to move forward in a positive and successful way and academics who are striving to address the many technical challenges. The meeting is intended to be a positive contribution to help us all live in a sustainable world.
There will be a series of talks and posters from industrial and academic speakers covering many of the main topics this subject raises. We hope that the talks and discussions with the speakers will help attendees with their own work and interests.

We are particularly enthusiastic for early career attendees and welcome applications for the chance to present a poster (with a £100 Amamzon Voucher for the 'best', by popular vote). Unfortunately we expect to have some limitations on space and will take posters on a 'first come, first served' basis, if spaces become full.
