Industrial Doctorate Centre at ECCM20

We are pleased to announce that a team of EngD students from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council funded Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture will be presenting their latest work at ECCM 20 (the 20th European Conference on Composite Materials) in Lausanne, Switzerland – 26-30 June 2022. There are two special sessions dedicated to Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture in the afternoon of 28th June. Posters from all the presentations will be on display during the afternoon refreshment break if you cannot attend the session. We will have an information booth in the exhibition at the conference, please visit booth #6 to find out more about our research, opportunities to study with us and the work of the Bristol Composites Institute  and their research projects NextCOMP and CerTest. Professor Ivana Partridge the founder of the Industrial Doctorate Centre starts the afternoon’s proceedings with a keynote presentation

We have chosen to showcase the work at ECCM as it brings together participants from academia and industry who share an interest in Composite Materials and is the main European forum for knowledge exchange on recent accomplishments and future trends in Composite materials. This year’s conference is on the theme of “Composite meet Sustainability” and will highlight sustainability aspects which are prominent in the research projects in our Centre.

We are proud to present the following: 

Ivana Partridge, University of Bristol
