TRI Research Forum

Moderated by Dr. Crisan Popescu & Dr Apostolos Pappas

Research Forum gives TRI Member Companies an exclusive overview of new research and future research directions at TRI.  It is also a chance for members to give us some feedback on the areas of research that will be of most interest to them.  It is, as the title suggests, a forum for discussion.  A chance for TRI team to listen to what members need from our work.

This event is exclusive to TRI Member Companies.  Member companies should not share any of the information provided to anyone outside of their businesses.

Discussions on future directions will, on this occasion, be moderated by two independent, TRI Adjunct Fellows:  Dr Crisan Popescu, a hair and textiles sciences authority (details), and Dr Apostolos Pappas, a skin, nutrition and lipids science authority (details).
