Final year students are invited to submit a talk abstract, to be shortlisted by professors from all four TYC Institutions.  Twelve successful applicants will be invited to present their research by way of a short talk which will be judged by a panel of experts.  The ‘Best Talk’ will be rewarded with a generous cash prize.

All TYC students should submit an abstract to present a poster of their research.  Posters should be A1 size and portrait style.

The highlight of the day will be a talk from our special guest speaker: Robert Farr from Jacobs Douwe Egberts with his talk 'Soft Matter Challenges in Coffee Processing'
