Symposium Day for the MRes in Molecular Science & Engineering


The 7 students who took part in the symposium.

The inaugural IMSE MRes symposium took place on Tuesday 24th of July where students presented their exciting collaborative research projects.

The first cohort of students presented their exciting collaborative research projects with our industrial partners. The MRes, consisting of 7 students from all across the globe, was attended by industry supervisors, academics and members of the research groups in which students are based.

The event provided an opportunity to network with IMSE academics and industrial partners, celebrate this year’s research projects and explore possibilities for future collaborative research.

Students were based in companies and institutes as diverse as BASF, P&G, PSE, STFC Hartree. 

If any companies are interested in working on collaborative research projects and hosting MRes students, please contact George Jackson or Steph Pendlebury.
