The Science City Research Alliance Materials Modelling and Property Prediction Day Date: Tuesday 12th July 2011 Time: 9:45am -- 1:00pm Venue: Think Tank, Millennium Point, Birmingham Event details ============= This free event is to inform an audience of industry participants about the expertise and facilities available to them from within the Science City Research Alliance in the field of computational materials and nanoscience. The goal is to stimulate interaction and support the development of relationships between industry and key academics from across the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham and for you to see how scientists in the Research Alliance can help you. Background ========== The ability to construct quantitative models to predict the properties and the reactivity of molecules and materials is a key limitation in many industries. Within the Science City Research Alliance we have particular expertise in developing computational chemistry models, and implementing them to understand how variations in chemical components, or processing conditions, can be used to tailor the properties of the resultant materials both at bulk and nanoscopic levels Expertise lies across a number of fields including: * Modelling the interface between biological molecules and membranes with inorganic materials. * Modelling nanoparticle nucleation, growth, rearrangement and reactivity. * Simulating hard materials (ceramics and metals) from the nano- to the macro-scale. * Predicting charge transport in semiconductors and metal-insulator transitions. * Modelling of organic and dye-sensitized materials. * Predicting the behaviour of complex fluids and soft materials. * Design of additives to control rheology and crystal growth * Surface modification treatments and growth inhibition. These areas cover an array of applications including: * Biomedical applications including implants, inhibitors, bio-sensors, anti-cancer agents and drug delivery. * Solar cells. * Semiconductors and electronics. * Catalysis in fuel cells and for synthesis. * Oil and gas additives. * Structural materials. * Nanomedicine. * Liquids, liquid crystals, polymers, and colloids. Target audience This meeting is aimed at anyone from the industry sector who has applications and requirements in the topic areas. Representatives will be most welcome from both high-tech start-up and more developed companies with a technological aspect. The event will be most suitable for individuals with some appreciation of science or technology. The Science City Research Alliance ================================== The Science City Research Alliance is a strategic union between the West Midlands' two leading research universities: Warwick and Birmingham. The aim of this alliance is to pool expertise, work collaboratively on testing, analysis, research and development and engage with business and industry, giving access to the latest thinking, research and state-of-the-art equipment in the field. The Chemistry Innovation Knowledge Transfer Network =================================================== Chemistry Innovation is a knowledge exchange at the forefront of the chemistry-using industries. It's one of 16 Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTNs) in the UK, structured around economic sectors. Chemistry is a key enabling science for a major part of the UK economy and it is Chemistry Innovation's mission to support the chemistry-using industries, driving innovation and value across the chemistry-using industries. This includes chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, chemistry dependent sectors such as home and personal care, food and drink, polymers, crop protection and lubricants, as well as sectors which require substantial chemistry input, including oil, gas, materials and electronics. The combined value of the UK chemistry-using industries is a total GVA of over Â£270 billion, with a regular surplus on overseas trade. The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network ============================================= The role of the NanoKTN is to simplify the nanotechnology Innovation landscape by providing a clear and focused vehicle for the rapid transfer of high-quality information on technologies, markets, funding and partnering opportunities. The NanoKTN programme of work falls into 4 strategic objectives, which cascade down from the key goals of The Technology Strategy Board.
