Irish Adhesion, Surface Coating and Composites Conference 2013

Organised by:

SCI's All Ireland and Materials Chemistry Group

Dublin

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

The Irish chemical industry is perhaps best known worldwide for its pharmaceutical side, and much of Irish academic chemical research supports this industry. However, there is also a substantial research effort, both industrial and academic, in the fields of polymer and material chemistry and physics.

In Irish industry and academia, there is a substantial research effort in the fields of adhesion, surface science, surface coatings and composites. This one-day conference, running in its third year, aims to bring together both sets of researchers, plus suppliers to all three industries.
