The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub has released its programme for the upcoming annual Open Day on Thursday 12th September 2019 at University of Nottingham.
This free-to-attend event will celebrate the second complete year of the Hub, providing partners the opportunity to highlight progress to date and showcase project outputs. This will be a great opportunity for those across the composites manufacturing supply chain to learn about the latest research and developments in this field.
