ChemEngDayUK 2020

After much waiting and in consultation with colleagues across UK Chemical Engineering Departments, we have decided to hold a virtual event to replace the original conference, keeping the same programme where possible and enriching it with further contributions from colleagues who wish to join us next on 7/8 April 2021.

Participants will have the opportunity to make presentations from anywhere in the world through a remote presentation.

Looking forward to seeing you, albeit virtually. Professor Hadj Benkreira

Making Knowledge Work

Weds, 7 April mid day - Thurs, 8 April mid afternoon 2021, The University of Bradford

The University of Bradford Department of Chemical Engineering is delighted to be hosting ChemEngDayUK 2021 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), Prof. Raj Patel and Prof. Iqbal Mujtaba (co-chairs), Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Bradford, UK.


Topics for this year’s conference include the following themes:

  • Process Modelling
  • Energy & Sustainability
  • Biochemical Engineering
  • Advanced Materials (Powders, polymers, soft solids, etc.)
  • Educational Theme: ‘CDIO and Future Approaches to Learning  & Teaching in Chemical Engineering’.
