We had an excellent event to mark this special birthday (on 20th September) of Prof Phil Coates FREng, and the award-winning innovative science and many international collaborations, friendships and the associated international research community he has helped to promote over the past 40 years.

It was a very friendly gathering of international colleagues from academy, industry and government, (including the Chinese Ambassador to the UK) for leaders and early career researchers, with technical sessions, laboratory demonstrations and good social opportunities.

It was a special event! It was held in conjunction with theUK-China Advanced Materials Research Institute Research Workshop - Advanced Materials for Healthcare - a key collaboration between the UK and China in advanced materials for healthcare, with associated MeDe Innovation, our EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices.

These events all took place in the University of Bradford Norcroft Conference Centre and the Polymer IRC Laboratories
