Bio and Chemical Sensors Workshop

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

21st March 2013 09:30 - 16:00

Village Urban Resort Swansea

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 workshop is intended for academics and industry to present their interests, expertise and resources in sensor technologies, in order to promote discussion of research ideas, funding applications and industrial collaboration with people who share similar research interests. There is no cost for attending this event but there are limited places available.

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.
