This symposium aims at reporting the results of the Innovate UK-Ministry of Science and Technology China project entitled “Increasing bearing life by combining a novel manufacturing bearing steel process with multiscale modelling techniques”. The project combines academic groups at Lancaster University (LU), University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB), and the China Iron and Steel Research Institute (CISRI), together with industries such as SKF and Jiangyin Xingcheng Special Steel (JXSS).  Future work based on the adoption of the results by industry will also be discussed.

Advanced Resource Efficiency Centre (AREC) Showcase in the European Parliament

On 27th June 2015, the AREC team, led by Professor Lenny Koh, showcased its research and impact at the ‘Pathways to Global Policy, Industry and Societal Impact on Resource Efficiency and Sustainability event at the European Parliament, Brussels.

The event was hosted by John Procter, MEP for Yorkshire and Humber, through the White Rose Brussels group, and attended by policy makers, industry representatives and academics. The main aims of the event were to present the impact of AREC’s research and develop potential future connections to further extend AREC’s impact reach.

“Alloy Design – A Resource Efficient Approach”

On 1 September 2016 the DARE programme held its second Annual Symposium at the University of Sheffield.

The one day event had a mixture of presentations by DARE academic and industry partners plus guest speakers from throughout Europe. The presentations focussed on the challenges academics and industry face when trying to design new alloys with minimum material waste and less dependence on rare earth additions, whilst retaining their strength and resistance to wear and corrosion.  The Symposium was well attended by UK and International academic and industry delegates and all agreed that the event provided an interesting mix of high-level talks.

A big thank you to our speakers and delegates who attended the event.

Photos and presentations from the event can be found here.

DARE Annual Workshop 2016 Announced: “Alloy Design — A Resource Efficient Approach”

 

Following the success of our Inaugural Workshop last year, we are pleased to announce that the DARE Annual Workshop 2016 will again take place in Sheffield on 1 September 2016.

The event will revolve around one of the Programme’s three principle areas of study – the design of resource efficient alloys for manufacture that offer both higher performance and reduced reliance on key elements.  Some of the topics to be discussed are shown in the attached flyer and a full programme will be available shortly.
