Programme Launched for Hub Open Day

Published: 22nd July 2022

The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub has announced its annual Open Day on Tuesday 13 September 2022. This free-to-attend in person event will be hosted at The AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Brunel Way, Catcliffe.

The Hub are delighted to welcome Dr Stu Morris, Engineering Director from Pentaxia as the  keynote speaker for the event.

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  students will present their high quality and diverse composites research through a poster 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.

The open day will close with an evening dinner reception at The Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria Hotel, Sheffield, which attendees are invited to attend. More information on this can be found upon registration. To register for the event, please click here.

If you require accommodation for the event, the preferred hotel is The Crowne Plaza Royal Victoria, Sheffield. Bookings can be made using the following link Crowne Plaza Sheffield- Hub open day Hotel booking link Please note that the rooms are subject to availability.
