Flow Chemistry Europe 2020 | 3rd – 4th March 2020
Wellcome Genome Conference Centre, Hinxton, Cambridge

Sharpe Event Management is organising the 2020 Flow Chemistry Europe Conference on behalf of The Flow Chemistry Society and is delighted to welcome you to this event in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK.

The society aims to unite and represent those who are actively working in this rapidly developing field. The selected speakers include chemists and chemical engineers, from both industrial and academic backgrounds. Topics that will be discussed cover fields such as chemical synthesis in flow which will include emerging techniques such as electro- and photochemistry, the development of multi-step synthesis, and applications in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The preparation of polymers for materials science and medicinal chemistry will also be presented. Finally, the impact of machine-learning, self-optimizing systems and novel analytical techniques in flow will be featured at the conference. Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances in the area of flow chemistry with companies exhibiting from Europe, US, as well as Asia/Pacific.

New for 2020 Line Up – Round Table Discussion

The Round Table Discussion is open to all delegates and will be on the theme: “Standardization in Flow Chemistry”. The discussion will form part of the agenda during the conference in Cambridge on Wednesday 4th March at 2pm.

The objective of the round-table discussion is to highlight and discuss the long-time unsolved problem of standardization of the field.

Our panellists include Prof. Steven Ley, Camridge University, Prof. Timothy Noel, Eindhoven University of Technology, Dr. Ferenc Darvas, Flow Chemistry Society and Dr. Gellért Sipos, ThalesNano who will discuss their views on standardization strategy, practice, policy, innovation, and education.
