Bristol Composites Institute launch and ACCIS 10th Anniversary Conference
Bill Brown Design Suite, Queen's Building, University of Bristol, Woodland Road
We are delighted to announce that ACCIS has been recognised as a Specialist Research Institute at the University of Bristol, and will become Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS). This is a very exciting development, which recognises and builds on the success of ACCIS over the last 10 years, and opens a new era for composites activities in Bristol in the future.
Our 10th annual conference on Wednesday 15th November will also be the launch event for the new Institute where we will be showcasing our research and marking 10 years of ACCIS in the brand new wing of the University's Queen's Building.
