Two UK students have been selected to go forward to the SAMPE European Student Seminar (prior to and during the SAMPE Conference/JEC Exhibition) to be held in Paris during April 2007.

The UK and Ireland Chapter of the Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (SAMPE), in collaboration with the Composites Division of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), held their Annual Student Seminar on Monday 20 November 2006 at IOM3 HQ in London. Eight students representing seven universities took part. Each gave an interesting well-presented talk on their respective research project. The presentations ranged from chitosan/ATP htdrogels and the electrical properties of filled rubber through minimisation of prepreg waste to the Quickstep process and optimised tow placement.
