Macro Group Young Researchers’ Meeting, Durham University

Durham castle

1 August 2014

The Macro Group UK, a joint subject group of SCI and the RSC, has for many years held an annual two day meeting to showcase the work of PhD students and post-docs. The 2014 Young Researchers' Meeting was held at Durham University towards the end of July. The event was extremely well supported with over 130 registered delegates, almost 90 posters and 19 oral presentations from early career researchers (ECRs). The ECR presenters were supported by three keynote talks from established polymer science researchers: Prof Aline Miller of the University of Manchester; Prof Bill MacDonald of DuPont Teijin Films; and Prof Sebastien Perrier of the University of Warwick. The ECR presentations were of an extremely high standard and covered all aspects of polymer science: from basic to applied science; and from polymer synthesis to physics and modelling. The quality of the presentations was rewarded by prizes given to the top three poster and oral presentations. The excellent science, friendly atmosphere, opportunity to make new contacts and the sunny weather meant that the event was enjoyed by all who attended.

Chairman, Macro Group
