Organised by:

SCI's Scotland Group in partnership with The Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership (ECFP)

University of Edinburgh

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


Designing formulations to meet precise and demanding targets for performance or stability can be a challenge across all sectors from the Extractive Industries and Agrochemicals to Food and Drink and Personal Care. The Soft Matter Research Group at the University of Edinburgh specialists in understanding the interplay of function, structure, interactions and dynamics in multicomponent mixtures. Knowledge of these crucial elements will be essential for informed design of future formulations. You will discover new opportunities by networking with academics and other industrial participants.

Cross pollination of solutions across sectors will enable your business to flourish. Collaboration will increase the scope of your market. Sharing challenges will influence future directions for academic research.

At 'Informulation' we invite you to:

  • Learn about research that will influence the design of future formulations
  • Network with academics and businesses across all sectors
  • Present your product, business idea, technical challenges or research interests
  • Enjoy in-depth 1:1 meetings with academics or potential business partners
  • Discover the facilities and expertise available at the University of Edinburgh
  • Learn about funding opportunities for collaborative work.

The Scotland Group will be holding their AGM during the lunch break, new members and guests are welcome.

AGM papers will be available online shortly.
