UK/Japan Workshop on Composites

25 March 2013, 9.30 AM - 25 March 2013, 9.30 AM

UK/Japan Workshop on Composites

Sponsored by EPSRC Building Global Engagement in Research (BGER) award and supported by the British Composites Society, ACCIS will be hosting a UK-Japan International Composites Research Workshop at 10 am on March 25th 2013 which is open to all to attend.

Leading experts from top Japanese universities along with Imperial College, the Universities of Nottingham and Bristol will be giving lectures centred on key research strengths such as Self-Healing, Morphing, Multi-Scale Modelling, High Performance Composites, Manufacturing Process Monitoring.
