EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Chemical Technologies is pleased to announce this year's Summer Showcase. This is the main opportunity to discuss and develop collaborations for the forthcoming year, and to provide a chance for our industrial and international partners, along with anyone else interested, to catch up with ongoing research in the centre.

General information

What is it?

Our annual Summer Showcase focuses on disseminating the latest research in the area of sustainable chemical technologies.

The programme includes presentations from International and Industrial Partners, academics and CDT students. The conference dinner is on Monday evening - all invited!

Who should attend?

This is a valuable opportunity for anyone who wants to learn about the latest developments in sustainable chemical technologies, or to initiate or deepen collaborations in this area.

The goal is to bring together students and academics associated with the CDT, the CDT’s international and industrial partners and various stakeholder groups and professional organisations with an interest in Sustainable Chemical Technologies. Current and new CDT students will be present, with the former presenting some of their early results.
