The Formulation Science and Technology group (FSTG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to announce that it is planning to hold a third conference on Innovations in Encapsulation, following on from our successful 2014 and 2016 events.
This will be held on Friday 8th December 2017 at Burlington House, London.
This conference is designed to build on the success of these previous ones by exploring innovations within the general field of encapsulated materials. Areas to be considered will include novel routes to their manufacture, the properties that such products exhibit, whether the shell protects the contents or provides controlled release or indeed the characterization of such materials. The applications areas can be anything from pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, agrochemicals veterinary to smart materials such as inks, coatings and adhesives. This conference will be of great interest to academics who will be providing us with an insight into their innovations in this field either via the presentation of a paper or through the submission of a poster. These presentations and posters will be of great interest to industrialists who may find that this conference opens up new areas of collaboration between them and the academics. Once again we have deliberately extended the conference day by allowing time for networking at the end supported by additional refreshments and mulled wine.
