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 titled “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 12th January at the Institute for Manufacturing at Cambridge University.

Presentations were 10-minute oral presentations on a variety of subjects related printing ranging on a variety of subjects encompassing subjects ranging from ceramic manufacture, OFETs in polymer layers to more conventional printing subjects such as flexographic and inkjet printing.

The first prize was awarded to Morgan Miles of Swansea University on “The Science behind flexographic Printing uniformity” (see attached photograph Morgan Miles).
The second prize was awarded to Tian Carey of Cambridge University on “Spray coating of thin films on 3 dimentional surfaces for a graphene based capacitive touch device” (see attached photograph Tian Carey).

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.
