UK/Japan Workshop on Composites

25 April 2013

UK/Japan Workshop on Composites

Sponsored by EPSRC Building Global Engagement in Research (BGER) award and supported by the British Composites Society, ACCIS hosted a UK-Japan International Composites Research Workshop on March 25th 2013. The workshop was very successful, bringing together participants from industry, universities and other organisations to hear about recent developments in composites research in the UK and Japan.
