DREAMS of the Future 24/04/2012

Following the success of last autumn's event, we are holding another DREAMS of the Future (DiREcted Assembly of MaterialS) meeting aimed at Early Career Researchers. It will be an opportunity to network and share knowledge across discipline boundaries, forming collaborations that can be built on throughout a research career.

This April, the DREAMS meeting will be hosted by CMAC, the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation in Glasgow. Once again, we invite Early Career Researchers with interests across all the Network's theme areas, from academia and from industry, to take part. The agenda will consist of research presentation sessions, a tour of CMAC's facilities, informal breakout discussion groups and a chance to hear about outreach activities and how the Network intends to further support Early Career Researchers in future.

In the light of feedback from the first DREAMS meeting, as well as refreshments during the day's event, an evening meal giving further opportunity for informal networking, will be provided locally. A £50 contribution towards travel and accommodation can also be claimed by participants retrospectively on production of receipts. The Premier Inn in George Square is recommended by the hosts as providing economical accommodation close to the meeting location

If you would like to register your interest in this event and reserve a place, please let the coordinator know ASAP,  and you will be sent further details as they are finalised.
