French-Australian Friendly: Advanced Materials Workshop
30 Jun 9:00 am - 30 Jun 5:00 pm

Institut et des Molécules et des Matériaux du Mans

CBNS researcher Dr Mike Whittaker  will co-chair a 1 day workshop with Prof Laurent Fontaine, the Director of the Institut des Molecules et Materiaux du Mans – UMR 6283 CNRS (Université du Maine, Le Man) on  Friday 30th June at the Institut des Molecules et Materiaux du Mans.

The one-day workshop will take place within the “SPEED project”: Smart sustainable PolymErs and procEss Development. The program will highlight recent advances in soft materials design and synthesis, and build on the existing research collaboration between the CBNS and Institut des Molecules et Materiaux du Mans – UMR 6283 CNRS.

The workshop will also promote and recognise the numerous exchanges of French researchers and students between the CBNS and French institutions. The MIPS Nanomed node of the CBNS has hosted 7 excellent student researchers from France since 2014. These students have contributed greatly to the research culture of the node and to many high impact papers.

CBNS researchers Dr Kristian Kempe, Dr Nghia Truong and PhD student Mr James Grace who are attending the European Polymer Federation Congress 2017,  will also be giving research presentations at the workshop.
