Benefit through Sponsorship of the Symposium

Following the hugely successful inaugural Symposium in 2018, the Postgraduate Research Symposium on Ferrous Metallurgy is established as the showcase annual event for presentation, demonstration and acknowledgement of the latest academic thinking on ferrous metallurgy.

  • Be acknowledged as a leader and supporter of academic research into ferrous metallurgy
  • Enhance your standing in the steel industry, the materials sector, universities, centres for doctoral training and government agencies; whilst also developing client relationships
  • Stand out as a leading supporter of academic research and highlight your organisation to a captive audience

The 2019 Symposium will allow doctoral researchers and university departments from across the UK to showcase their research. The Symposium will inspire academics and research students to engage in the research challenges of the steel industry and provide a forum for industry and academics to network and discuss future research opportunities.
