Travelling Conference - Ningbo

After a successfull visit to the Republic of Korea, a group of researchers from the ITA visited the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) for the second stop of the travelling conference. After a warm welcome by the Provost of UNNC, Prof. Chris Rudd, as well as his collgues Prof. Nick Warrior and Dr. Xiaoling Liu, the presentations commenced. Current topics in the field of reinforcement fibres, textile construction, aerospace as well as biodegradeable glass fibre reinforced composites were presented and discussed by an international panel of researchers.

Together with the industry partners from both the ITA and the UNNC, the cultural and academic exchange was successfully initiated. Potential areas of collaboration were discussed over lunch and partnerships initiated. The conference was a key step for a closer relationship between the ITA and the University of Nottingham.
