Inaugural ECS North West UK Symposium – 10th February 2016

This is the first event of the newly formed ECS North West UK Student Chapter, which was founded with the intention of providing a student organised forum to improve links between researchers in electrochemistry within institutions in the North West of the UK.  

There will be refreshments provided between the two talks, followed by a student poster session, with a poster prize sponsored by PCCP, and wine reception.

Please register here by January 29th. We recommend that attendees to display a poster of their work at the event. Those who wish to do so should select this option when registering. Poster titles should be emailed to the organisers by Wednesday 3rd February.
