Actions and Detail Panel
The LJMU Chemical Supply Chain Forum in association with C₃
Wed 29 March 2017, 12:15 – 15:30 BST
"Leading academics coming together with industry leaders - your chance to shape the future of your supply chain."
Date: Wednesday 29th March 2017
Venue: James Parsons Lower Lecture Theatre, LJMU Byrom Street, Liverpool L3 3AF
The LJMU Chemical Supply Chain Forum is an event created exclusively for businesses operating within the chemical supply chain throughout the Northern region. An event where your attendance can actually influence the future of your supply chain as well as positively impact on the future of your business.
It has been formed in association with C₃ to create a collaboration of academia and commercial organisations that want to contribute to the development of solutions facing the industry today. How will “smart contracts” and the “internet of things” impact our daily business or come to our aid in terms of quality control and liability relating to goods in transit or reducing carbon emissions?
Individual companies within the supply chain may not have the resource or critical mass to successfully resolve the issues themselves so this forum aims to provide the interactive arena it needs for these companies to collaboratively take action and shape the future of the industry.
