Founded in 2017, AILU’s Early Career Researchers (ECR) Group represents the next generation of laser industry and academic professionals. The Group, operating as a committee with an elected Chair and Secretary, is spread across research centres and industrial manufacturers both in the UK and Europe.
On Wednesday 30th November the Group will host a morning seminar followed by a tour of the Additive Manufacturing facilities at the University of Nottingham’s Institute for Advanced Manufacturing. The members of the Committee will give short presentations highlighting the current focus of their research or application area.
The seminar is open to AILU members and non-members and would be of interest to those who might join this group or would benefit from networking with this enthusiastic and talented pool of individuals.
