The Chemistry of Collaboration, 3rd November 2015: Event Report


This day event was organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in partnership with NEPIC (North East Process Industry Cluster ). EPP participated as part of RSC Enterprise Plus and was represented by Ian Dawson (Chief Scientific Officer). Over seventy delegates and nine exhibitor s attended this event.

Collaboration was the theme running through the presentations during the morning session. There were several interesting talks outlining strategies for SME’s (small to medium sized enterprises) wanting to collaborate with large multinationals notably the keynote speaker: Professor Roy Sandbach who was R&D Research Fellow at Proctor and Gamble. The presentations will become available shortly and the link will be posted on the website shortly.

The afternoon session allowed one to one meetings between the delegates. This was a very useful opportunity for networking within the chemical industry in the North East of England and understanding its scope.
