If you are working in industry and have an interest in polymer science we would like to cordially invite you to our Annual Polymer Club Symposium, to be held on Wednesday 1st November 2017.

We hope to welcome a large audience from a wide variety of industries related to polymer and colloid science. Our previous meetings have had delegates from a range of companies including, Postnova Analytics, Innospec, AkzoNobel, Withers & Rodgers LLP, Lubrizol, BASF, Merck, BYK Additives, Synthomer, Unilever, Silson Ltd., RSC, Marches Ltd., Tata Steel, Merck, Nuplex Resins, DSM, Devan Chemicals, and Medherant.

The meeting will be on-campus in our Conference facitilies.
