Micropore was delighted to be present at the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers’ Day 7-8 May at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. Now in its third year, this event provided an excellent opportunity to meet existing customers and profile Micropore's unique technology to this important sector.
Micropore Technologies were one of just eight winners in the RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) Chemistry Means Business awards. This was a showcase of success and innovation in the sector across the UK and Europe, took place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster on 15 October, complete with sweeping views of the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
The focus of the event was our Emerging Technologies Competition final, in which 39 candidates – from a mixture of start-ups, SMEs and university research spin-outs – pitched their ideas to panels of experts in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style competition. Ideas had to fit into one of four categories, Food and Drink, Materials and Enabling Technology, Energy and the Environment and Health.
