Formulation 4.1

Putting Digital into Formulation


Formulation 4.1 continues the story of bringing digital to all aspect of formulation and looks at how Industry 4.0 is changing the formulation industry.

The meeting will showcase ongoing activities which are aimed at accelerating the uptake of Industry 4.0 principles throughout the formulation supply chain.

You will hear about how the UK is leading the way with major collaborative activities well supported by academic, industrial and government resources and how individual companies are leveling the playfield through taking advantage of the new digital technologies enabling formulation science and technology.

We will look at how digital control is optimising the manufacture of formulated products and learn about the opportunities (and challenges!) that the implementation of Industry 4.0 offer for the formulating industries.m , a
