Polymer IRC Event: Friday 24th April 2009Posted on Friday, April 17th, 2009 in Polymer seminars| Share this article
Polymers and the “Real Crystal Ball” – Building New Polymers by Molecular Design.
Tom McLeish, Alexi Likhtman and Ian Robinson, will present their insights into how molecular design can be used to improve polymers. This will be followed by a discussion as to the challenges and opportunities presented for the building of new polymers by molecular design.
Debates will be held in both groups and in plenary form, with the aim of exploring the current possibilities. The final aim is to develop a shortlist of possible projects along with the necessary prerequisites needed to start, such as identification of project technical deliverables, partners, funding sources and potential market value.
The free event will be held at the Polymer Engineering Laboratories at the University of Bradford. Please see the flyer for further details and registration.
