ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
17th and 18th September 2013
This conference is the only national manufacturing research conference focusing on the leading edge (TRLs 1-4), taking a broad perspective on manufacturing.
- The aim of the conference is to build and network the manufacturing research community, exchange best practice and work in progress and communicate the value of the community to stakeholders.
- The conference will become the national forum for defining and debating the objectives and approaches for Scientific Excellence in manufacturing research.
The conference is for, and led by, the community and is sponsored by EPSRCs Manufacturing the Future Theme as part of their objective to develop the UKs reputation for excellence in Manufacturing research. The conference will be open to all from academia and industry. It is expected that the EPSRC Centres for innovative Manufacturing will be well represented as will other current and earlier EPSRC and TSB sponsored activities in manufacturing including the Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres, Centres for Doctoral Training and EngD Centres, the Technology Strategy Board High Value Manufacturing programme and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
Please note that the organising committee reserves the right to limit the number of attendees from each centre.
CRANFIELD MANUFACTURING WEEK
16th and 20th September 2013
Manufacturing at Cranfield University is unique in its multi-disciplinary approach that brings together expertise in the areas of design, technology and management. We link fundamental materials research with manufacturing to develop cutting edge technologies and improve the science base of manufacturing research. Cranfield Manufacturing Week will host two major manufacturing conferences and show case Cranfield manufacturing research and facilities. The week offers an opportunity for international academics, industrial practitioners and government agencies to debate and discuss state of the art manufacturing research in the UK and abroad.
The conference is hosted by the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services and Cranfield University. The 2014 conference will be hosted by the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation and Strathclyde University.
The first conference was hosted by the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Regenerative Medicine and Loughborough University.
