Realising opportunities and addressing challenges in formulation science
Posted on 04/10/2017
Formulation science and technologies are crucial to many chemistry-using sectors including home and personal care, food and drink, agrochemicals, coatings and pharmaceuticals.
SCI’s (the Society of Chemical Industry) Formulation Forum provides a place where business can openly discuss their needs with academia and formulation experts. It also provides a opportunity for academia to openly discuss their ideas with business, and form new research projects and collaborations. Ultimately the Formulation Forum aims to aid the discovery of solutions to business needs, facilitate the creation of new projects, and catalyse investigation of new ideas.
SCI is hosting the Formulation Forum Launch Event on 17-18 January 20918 in London. Major companies, SMEs, academics, and students from all areas, including scientists, engineers, patent attorneys, marketing experts and business managers are invited to register for this first in a series of annual 2-day workshops.
The programme features speakers from Bayer, SCI, MSACT Research & Consulting, Sagentia, the University of Edinburgh, AkzoNobel & RSC FSTG, Syngenta, Aqdot, iFormulate, P&G, NFC, EPSRC, the University of Birmingham, Synthomer, Durham University, Lonza, and the University of Strathclyde. KTN’s Dr Rachael Rowlands Jones, (Knowledge Transfer Manager, Formulation) will speak about opportunities for funded collaborations in formulation.
