The Printing and Graphics Science Group makes awards each year, if there are suitable applicants.
Printing and Graphics Science Group Student Presentation Prize
This prize is open to all research students currently undertaking work at a university in the UK or Ireland, leading to a PhD or master’s degree, who present their work at the annual Printing and Graphic Science Group Student Conference. The Group will award a prize of £50 for the best student.
The last student conference was co-organised with the KTN on the subject of “Printing for the Future” was a one-day event providing researchers from UK universities with the opportunity to showcase their work to industry and academia. It was held on 19 January at the Institute Headquarters in London.
Presentations were 10-minute oral presentations on a variety of subjects related printing ranging from 3D printing of Ceramic Composites to Printing of flexible PCB's with Silver nanoparticle inks.
There were two prizes awarded.
The first prize was awarded to Beth Kazmierski from Durham University for her presentation on “Inkjet Patterning onto Patterned Substrates”
The second prize was awarded to Ashley Johns also from Durham University for his presentation on “Inkjet Printing of High-Molecular-Weight Polymers via Emulsions”.
As a member of the Printing and Graphics Science Group Tom Mitchell-Williams was successfully supported in his application for funding from the Research Student Conference Fund. This enabled him to attended the 50th anniversary Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) in Denver, Colorado. His report of the visit is here.
