Third Annual CDT in Formulation Engineering Conference 2018
The Third Annual Centre for Doctoral Training in Formulation Engineering Conference was hosted at the University of Birmingham in April 2018.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Formulation Engineering is a four year postgraduate programme at the University of Birmingham, consisting of study and research, mainly based in industry.
A variety of academics and industrialists attended the two-day conference to network and hear presentations given by Research Engineers within the CDT Programme. Presentations highlighted key aspects of projects, overall results, and future ways to collaborate with industry. A poster session was also organised by first year students – an opportunity to network with industry experts and discuss research themes.
- Student Thomas Machin (School of Chemical Engineering), won an Excellent Paper Award for his research on 'Electrical Resistance Rheometry'
- Giuseppe Forte, a student from the University of Birmingham's Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) Formulation Engineering within the School of Chemical Engineering, was awarded best presentation for his work on catalyst manufacture at the IChemE Fluid Mixing Processes SIG 2018 Research Student event in April 2018.
- Dr Sophie Cox, Lecturer at the School of Chemical Engineering and the Healthcare Technologies Institute, has made it to the final. Dr Cox is leading a team who are engineering novel medical systems to fight antimicrobial resistance.
- Researchers Dr Sophie Cox and PhD student Thomas Hall from the School of Chemical Engineering have won a prestigious award for the most innovative collaboration with an industry partner.
