Macro Group Young Researchers Meeting

Organised by:

SCI's Macro Group

Durham University

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

Macro Group is committed to holding meetings to develop the UK polymer science community. This very important meeting allows younger researchers from all areas of polymer science to mix and learn, and, in some cases, give their first external oral or poster presentations. With support from our sponsors, we are holding the 2014 YRM at Durham University in July and we would like to encourage representation from all polymer science groups across the UK and other European countries.

There will be three keynote lectures from established polymer scientists as well as presentations from Younger Members of Macro Group. All attendees are encouraged to present a poster to showcase their work.

We will also award prizes for the three best talks (sponsored by Domino UK) as well as poster prizes (sponsored by RSC Publishing).
