A two day seminar looking at magnetics related work in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The seminar will have talks from both industry and academia on the research, development and manufacturing work being carried out in both countries. The programme will finish with a site visit to Seagate’s factory near Londonderry.
There will be excellent opportunities to network with other seminar delegates built into the programme, as well as during an informal dinner onthe evening of the first day.
The programme outlined below is provisional, but we will attempt to stay with the start / finish times to support delegate travel.
This seminar has a limited number of spaces, so we would highly recommend you register early to avoid being disappointed.
