Friction PG researchers set up partnership programme collaboration in mineral processing with the University of Cape Town

An Industry Academia Partnership Programme (IAPP) sponsored by the UK Royal Academy of Engineering has been awarded to researchers in the Friction Programme grant and their colleauges to establish a collaboration between the University of Cape Town and University of Leeds to support mineral processing industry in South Africa. The partnership entitled “CAPE Partnership: Characterisation Advances in Particle Engineering” will enable the use of advanced characterisation techniques at particle scale level to improve the mineral processing efficiency at the industrial scale level, which in turn enhance their national economy and well-being. A technical workshop will be held in November 2018 in Cape Town to transfer the particle characterisation and modelling knowledge.

Friction: The Tribology Enigma is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, under grant no. EP/R001766/1
