Mr. Iain Crosley, Managing Director, Hosokawa Micron Ltd., UK ( which is a part of  Hosokawa Micron Group (  see Iain’s biography (Biographical Note) and achievement (Achievement)

We were pleased to be involved in such a well organised event and have the name Hosokawa Micron associated with it. The presentation and posters were all of a very high standard, and the enthusiasm of the participants was outstanding. The discussions that took place throughout the event gave us  a great understanding of the current areas of interest, and the challenges the researchers are facing.  

As well as a great technical program the social events were fantastic and the dinner at Old Trafford was the crowning glory. 

Well done on an outstanding event”.

“Thanks a lot: your congress was wonderful, very well organized, good and varied presentations. Very interesting + nice discussions”




PROF. HARRY ECCLES, PROFESSOR OF NUCLEAR MATERIALS,School of Physical Sciences and Computing, UCLan, Preston

“Hope you can now relax a little after a most successful conference. The arrangements from timetabling to poster session were well executed with no hitches etc. The variety of topics and speakers accentuated the conference theme and interests, all were stimulating. The organisation of final day panel discussion was well thought through, giving the panels topics to address thus not relying initially on delegate participation ensured discussion was near spontaneous, a clever tactic. The discussion did demonstrate that both industry and academia need to consider in depth why each party should have interactions, if not then time and money are wasted and the two parties finish up frustrated and ‘slightly’ disillusioned.

The visit to Manchester United football ground did add candles to the icing on top of the cake, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gave me more opportunities to interact/engage with other delegates as well as reminiscing with old friends and colleagues.

The poster sessions were adequate to allow delegates to visit most if not all the posters and the refreshments, lunch etc were more than adequate and varied and I am sure the cuisine demonstrated that UCLan’s facilities and catering staff are first class.  The opportunities for young students to attend were significant and talking with a number of them welcomed the experience. These opportunities were supported by your various sponsors which you should be congratulated on bring them on board.

Although the conference was nano, it was a big success.”
