MEETinLEEDS Welcomes the Bragg Exchange!

In January we welcomed the Bragg Exchange 2022 to campus for our first conference of the New Year! We were so pleased to host the Bragg Centre team and delegates in the Great Hall and in the brand new Sir William Bragg Building.

The event saw 5 key speakers from across the UK deliver talks and share knowledge on their latest works in Materials Research. There were also lightning presentations and posters given by external speakers and Bragg Centre members.

The Bragg Centre specialises in the discovery, creation and design of new materials, bringing together scientists and engineers to work on 6 fundamental research teams. They are a founding partner of the Henry Royce Institute, the UK’s centre for advanced material research and innovation.

Andrew Lee, Bragg Centre Manager and Engagement Excellence Fellow, commented this about the event:

“It was incredibly important to the Bragg Centre to get our community together in person after such a tumultuous time. The Events team worked hard to pave the way for this, being agile and flexible despite the difficult circumstances to help us to deliver an enriching experience for our internal community, whilst also broadcasting an external livestream to the world. The event was a great success and sets the precedent for future of the annual Bragg Exchange conference.”

We look forward to supporting the Bragg Centre across the rest of 2022 and with future Bragg Exchange conferences!
