One-day course – Alderley Park, UK 

14th June 2018

Formulation is an essential value-adding step in the development and manufacture of a huge number of chemical-using products. For example, medicines, cosmetics, toiletries, foods, detergents, cleaners, paints, inks, agrochemicals and adhesives are all formulated products. FORMULATION: THE BASICS is a one day introduction to formulation – what it is, where it is done, its benefits as well as why and how it is done.

WHO IS IT FOR?

FORMULATION: THE BASICS is especially suited to:

  • Commercial, production, technical or administrative staff in any company involved in the formulation supply chain.
  • Newcomers to R&D and production functions such as technicians, process operatives, QC and administrative staff.
  • Students and academics from non-chemistry disciplines who are seeking an industrial context to formulation.

Some basic scientific understanding will be helpful but is not essential. A chemistry degree is not required!
