Inaugural Composites@Manchester workshop is a huge successCompositesworkshopforweb

Researchers from the School of Materials recently organised and hosted the Composites@Manchester workshop.

Put together by Neha Chandarana and Dr Matthieu Gresil, the event gave students, early researchers, and academics, the opportunity to come together and share their interests in the analysis and investigation of composite materials.

As well as showcasing the School’s research in this area, the event’s aims were to bring this community together, encourage interaction that might lead to collaboration, create a forum for the exchange of knowledge, and maybe even spark new friendships.

More than 55 students and academics were present on the day, with talks and presentations from Prof Constantinos Soutis, Prof Prasad Potluri, Prof Ian Kinloch, and Dr Suelen Barg. Prof Soutis was particularly impressed by the proceedings:

“An amazing event which gave a platform to our research students to talk and get excited about their work. I’ll definitely be there next year.”

The team are already working on plans for the second Composites@Manchester. They hope to extend the invitations to those outside of the School of Materials in the coming year.
