RAPS/RAMS 2010 - A Joint Conference of RAPS (Recent Appointees in Polymer Science) & RAMS (Recent Appointees in Material Science)
1 - 3rd September 2010, Leeds
RAPS; Recent Appointees in Polymer Science, has been established for 12 years. It is a network aimed at providing a forum to enable recent appointees in all sectors of polymer science, to forge links and networks for the future helping to ensure a cohesive polymer community in the UK. Chemistry Innovation are keen to help the RAPS network access more industry links alongside their links to academia and would encourage attendance to the RAPS annual conference, a fantastic networking opportunity within the area of product design (recently spotlighted as a key priority area within Chemistry Innovation's Strategy Report).
The conference consists of a range of talks and posters covering all aspects of polymer science, spanning the traditional disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics, as well as providing the opportunity to meet other recently appointed scientists and talk with representatives from a range of companies, funding bodies and professional societies.
In recent years the meeting has been opening up to postdoctoral fellows to offer an opportunity to interact with other recently appointed academics and industrialists as they plan their future careers.
This year's meeting is joint with RAMS; Recent Appointees in Materials Science network.
