Making Knowledge Work

Tues, 7 April mid day - Wed, 8 April mid afternoon 2020, The University of Bradford

The University of Bradford Department of Chemical Engineering is delighted to be hosting ChemEngDayUK 2020 and look forward to welcoming research staff and students from UK universities and industrial collaborators to discuss developments and innovations in their fields of work.

The ChemEngDayUK concept is “that through a combination of distinguished plenary speakers, technical sessions with oral presentations from academics, research staff and students from across UK universities and industry, and interactive poster sessions, participants will showcase their research efforts and technologies, and share visions with researchers in the UK. New opportunities for collaborative effort will be created and, in particular, industrialists will be able to establish new dialogues and build relationships with universities in addition to developing links across industries”.

Organising Team: Prof. Hadj Benkreira (Chair), Dr. Raj Patel and Prof. Iqbal Mujtaba (co-chairs), Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bradford, UK.
