SOFI Industry Event 

You are warmly invited to join us at SOFI’s 3rd annual Industry Day on Thursday June 30, at The University of Leeds, School of Mathematics.

SOFI is the EPSRC sponsored Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Soft Matter & Functional Interfaces.  In just its 2nd year of operation, this joint collaboration between soft matter scientists in the Universities of Durham, Leeds and Edinburgh already has over 17 multinational and SME collaborating industries, over 15 international academic collaborating institutions and 30 PhD students.

The Industry Day is an opportunity for individual from industry to engage with these SOFI members, to hear more about what SOFI has to offer and hopefully help initiate future projects and collaborations via private one-to-one and/or group discussions between industrials, academics and students.

Those who have registered will be contacted in late May when the online one-to-one booking system opens. If you've already registered, please login to indicate what particular general areas you would like to discuss, and/or apply to give a 5-minute presentation on research challenges.

The registration fee for all delegates from industry is £50.

Lunch, plus morning and afternoon refreshments are provided. Accommodation is NOT included bit we have provided a list of convenient accommodation options.

We would also like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the exciting event conveniently taking place in Leeds the day before – UK Soft Matter Showcase - jointly organized with SOFI.  Registration for this event is separate, please go to:

We look forward to seeing you at the Industry Day and if you can make it, the Showcase too!
