Secrets of Formulation III


Nov 16, 2011
SCI HQ, London, UK

Synopsis

Designing colloidal formulations is an exceptionally complex process that requires a combination of scientific knowledge, experimental skill, experience, imagination and enthusiasm. Combining these with the correct inspiration can produce innovative colloidal systems and solutions to problems. We invite you to participate in SOF-III where our excellent line up of speakers will introduce to you the latest science, show how this can be used to create innovative colloidal systems and give you new knowledge, ideas and inspiration to take away with you.

Who should attend?

This meeting is suitable for all those interested in the design and application of colloidal systems including both academia and industry. Students are particularly encouraged to participate with our reduced delegate rate.
