LAUNCH of the Advanced Metal Processing Centre at BCAST

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to unveil speakers for the Advanced Metal Processing Centre (AMPC) and Constellium R&D Centre for Automotive Structures and Industry at Brunel University London on 13 June.

Please see programme below.

Following presentations there will be a networking lunch and then the opportunity to visit the new facilities, learn about their function, meet out researchers at the poster board exhibit, and enjoy the oppurtunity to network with industry and academia.
I enourage you to stay for the John Hunt Memorial Lecture presented by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) that will be delivered by this year's winner - Professor Lindsay Greer, Professor of Materials Science at Cambridge University. Lindsay will be presenting on the "Solidification of metals: interest and importance across the full range of supercooling". The lecture takes place at 3.30pm and will be followed by more networking and refreshments.
Our team of academics will be available during the day for discussions should you have an questions related to reseach collaboration. Please email BCAST@brunel.ac.uk and we will do our best to arrange a meeting. Do join us!

Best wishes,


Professor Zhongyn Fan Director of BCAST, Brunel University London
