Complex Fluids in Manufacturing – 21 April 2021
UCL – Non Newtonian Club BSR

You are kindly invited to a workshop on Complex Fluids in Manufacturing organised by UCL (Engineering, Maths) in collaboration with the Non-Newtonian Club of the BSR, as part of the dissemination plan for the EPSRC Formulation grant CORAL: Complex ORAL health products: Characterisation, modelling and manufacturing challenges. The event will serve as a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss challenges and applications of complex fluids.

The event is organised virtually. Our confirmed speakers include: Geoff Maitland (Imperial College), Serafim Bakalis (Un Copenhagen), Suzanne Fielding (Durham Un), Sophie Darragh (GSK), Randy Ewoldt (Un Illinois at Urbana-Champagne) and Yannis Dimakopoulos (Un Patras).
