Main event sponsor:



This conference will bring together researchers, engineers and scientists from around the UK to explore the latest technological advances and research results in core areas of chemical engineering. Through a combination of a distinguished plenary speaker, parallel technical sessions with invited talks by leading experts from academia and industry, and interactive poster sessions, participants will showcase their research efforts and technologies, and share visions with researchers in the UK. New opportunities for collaborative effort will be created and, in particular, industrialists will be able to establish new dialogues and build relationships with universities in addition to developing links across industries.


  • To strengthen the interactions within the UK chemical engineering academic community, in particular, to enhance communication among researchers and practitioners from the UK working in the area of chemical engineering.
  • To create a dynamic environment for presenting, transferring, and exchanging the know-how and latest advanced research highlights and scientific achievements in chemical engineering
  • To stimulate the creative professional activity of young engineers and scientists.


  • Academic researchers and industrial professionals at all levels working within research in chemical engineering and related sectors, particularly those based within the UK.


The outline programme is as follows. (The detailed programme is currently being finalised — the current draft can be found here.)
