Polymer Innovation Network (PIN) - 'When Plastic met Metal'

6:15pm - 8:30pm, Wed, 11 Oct '17
Location: International Institute for Product and Service Innovation, WMG, University of Warwick, Coventry

For those new to PIN it is a unique networking event for all users, makers and processors of plastic and has successfully brought this important community together to help bridge the gap between industry and R&D.

Based at WMG's impressive International Institute for Product and Service Innovation at the University of Warwick, in Coventry, PIN now boasts over 500 active members.

We now wish to extend this opportunity to colleagues within the metals industry and allow them to develop a similar network facility. This will provide a substantial contact capability between industry and the cutting edge development happening within WMG. Through the WMG SME Group, it will give access to expert help and technology to provide modern solutions to old problems. Please use this network as an opportunity to challenge us with your metal and materials based issues.

Find out about the latest materials research from WMG, current industry trends and future technologies whilst meeting and collaborating with other like-minded businesses and colleagues from the WMG SME Group.
