Programme Published for Adding Value to your Business through Materials Modelling

Do you need help with understanding how your materials function in your applications, or do you want to speed up your materials development programme? The NanoKTN, in association with the Chemistry Innovation KTN and in conjunction with the Thomas Young Centre, has organised 'Adding Value to your Business through Materials Modelling', to be held on 2nd July at UCL in London which can potentially help you on both counts.



9.30 Registration & Networking

10.00 Welcome & Introduction
Dr Barry Park, NanoKTN & Darren Ragheb, Chemistry Innovation KTN

10.10 An Introduction to the Thomas Young Centre (TYC): London Centre for the Theory and Simulation of Materials
Prof Angelos Michaelides, Director, TYC

10.25 What's the Evidence for the Economic Impact of Molecular Modelling?
Gerhard Goldbeck, Director, Goldbeck Consulting

10.50 Break & Networking

11.10 How the Computed Crystal Energy Landscape can Complement Experimental Polymorph Screening
Prof Sally Price, Computational Chemistry, UCL

11.30 Molecular Computation in Industry: A Perspective from BP
Nick Hazel, DRL Molecular Computation Network Leader, BP Chemicals

11.55 Title tbc
David Thompsett, Johnson Matthey

12.20 Title tbc
Erich Wimmer, Materials Design

12.45 Crystal Plasticity and Forming Limits for the Auto Industry
Prof Fionn Dunn, Imperial College London

13.05 Lunch & Networking

14.00 Innovation Support for Data Exploration
Jonathan Mitchener, Lead Technologist (Information and Communication Technology), Technology Strategy Board

14.20 Introduction to Breakout Sessions

14.30 Breakout Sessions

15.30 Discussions & Conclusions

16.00 Close


There will be a session where time will be available for you to present a specific problem or project proposal confidentially to the appropriate member(s) of the TYC in order to receive advice and guidance on the best solutions or courses of action for your business. This is your opportunity to spend time with experts who could potentially become collaborators on your project.


Remember too that modelling the nature and characteristics of the materials you are using and how they interact with other components in your formulation can help accelerate product development and improve efficiency.
