Inline and Advanced Metrology

The Welsh Intelligent Polymer Processing Consortium (WIP2C) for Functional Applications Workshop

19th September 2013 10:00 - 17:00

Swansea Marriott Hotel

The Welsh Intelligent Polymer Processing Consortium for Functional Applications (WIP2C) is a pan Wales collaborative project that brings together research expertise in the field of intelligent/functional polymers and their use in fields such as Display Technologies, intelligent packaging, flexible electronics, sensors and so-called "smart-products". As well as applications, there will be focus on volume production; including printed electronics together with simulation and modelling of processing and performance.

This event is intended for academics and industry to present their interests, expertise and resources in the inline and advanced metrology, in order to showcase their work and promote the discussion of research ideas, funding applications and industrial collaboration with people who share similar research interests. There is no cost for attending but there are limited places available.

As this is the final event in the WIP2C programme, there will also be a review of the project with a summary of the previous WIP2C events, with identification of common themes and potential areas for future collaborative projects.

If you would like any additional information on this event please contact Chris Phillips:

This project is funded by the EU's Convergence European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
