This conference brought together researchers, engineers and scientists from around the UK and explored the latest technological advances and research results in core areas of chemical engineering. 

The event comprised of a combination of a distinguished plenary speaker (Professor Marc-Olivier Coppens, Ramsay Memorial Professor and Head of Chemical Engineering Director, EPSRC Frontier Engineering Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering), along with parallel technical sessions with invited talks by leading experts from academia and industry, and interactive poster sessions, participants showcased their research efforts and technologies, and shared visions with researchers in the UK. New opportunities for collaborative effort were created and, in particular, industrialists were able to establish new dialogues and build relationships with universities in addition to developing links across industries.

We are pleased to announce that a number of our students and staff were awarded prestigious prizes.
