The Henry Royce Institute co-sponsored the IOM3's '50 Years of Steel Alloy Design' conference that took place in Sheffield from 7-8 November 2019. As part of the conference, delegates were invited to tour world class engineering research facilities, including the Royce Translational Centre. Over thirty engineers signed up to join the tour and enjoyed learning about the alloy design and creation micro-factory facilities available at the Royce Translational Centre.

They then continued their networking over a drinks and nibbles reception held in the foyer of the RTC.

Conference organiser Peter Morris said:

The visit made a nice a start to the event and people I spoke to were very impressed with the facilities they saw.
