The UK Solidification Workshop 2022
7 June 2022 @ 10:30 am - 8 June 2022 @ 5:30 pm
This workshop aims to provide a networking platform for the UK Solidification community.
Its objectives are to bring together people from all parts of the UK metals landscape, including higher education institutions, research organisations, industrial companies, government, funders, learned societies and trade bodies; to promote collaboration within the community; to map out solidification research across the nation and to discuss the future needs of the sector and new opportunities for reinvigorating metals in the UK.
Members of our team participated in this event with several oral presentations:
- “Green Metallurgy inspired by nature” by Prof. Z. Fan
- “Future trends in materials science” by Prof. B. Cantor
- “Current UK landscape for research funding” by Prof. G. Scamans
- “VIRTUAL. The Case for Animate Materials” by Prof. M. Miodownik
The organiser of this event – i.e. “The Future LiME Hub” – is a national centre in liquid metal engineering primarily funded by EPSRC and based at Brunel University London in collaboration with the Universities of Oxford, Leeds and Manchester, and Imperial College London. The Hub aims to lay down a solid foundation for full metal circulation by conducting research in physical metallurgy, solidification science and processing technology.
