The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub has announced its annual Open Day on Tuesday 19 October 2021. This free-to-attend event will be a virtual event, supported by the University of Edinburgh who are hosting the International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites (ICMAC), 20-21 October 2021.
The Hub are delighted to announce two keynote speakers for the event, Dr Adrian Gill from Vestas Wind Systems, and Dr Isabelle Paris from Bombardier Aviation. The programme will cover a range of Hub projects and provide Hub partners with the opportunity to highlight research progress to date, and showcase project outputs. Current PhD students will present their high quality and diverse composites research through 2 minute elevator pitches in a Quick Fire session.
The Open day will be supported by SAMPE UK and Ireland, who will host a Young Engineers Competition, where students will be invited to participate in a ‘Design and Make’ Competition which will be judged on the day and prizes awarded to the winning team.
The event will be a great opportunity for those across the composites manufacturing supply chain to learn more about the Hub’s latest research and how they can contribute to the Hub’s development and expansion and the opportunities available.
Additional information about the event and how to register your attendance will follow shortly.
