Opportunities to collaborate

Members of local, national & global industry are invited to our third annual Chemistry Networks event on Friday 28 September 2018, to learn more about opportunities to collaborate with department researchers across the research spectrum. 

The event will showcase research in the department, with academics from our five Research Interest Groups discussing their areas of interest and how they engage with industry. Particular highlights will be the chance to learn more about the successful research/industry partnerships now located in our newly completed Chemistry of Health building, and talks by student winners of our Showcase Chemistry week on a wide range of scientific areas.  

To close the day, there will be a drinks reception with research posters, and the opportunity to mingle in an informal setting.

The proposed schedule for the day will be (all talks in the department's Wolfson Lecture Theatre):

13.00-13.30 Registration 
13.30 Overview of the Department & "How to work with us": Prof John Pyle, Head of Department
