The Cutting Edge

To ensure that everyone attending Surfex has access to the latest in development and innovation, a 2-day programme of university-based achievement has been brought back after being introduced in 2022.  The Cutting Edge features universities presenting their latest achievements suitable to be adopted for industry applications.

If you are working in a University and want to be included, or know a University department that you feel should be included, please contact Victoria Emerton at Step Exhibitions on +44 (0)1892 518877.
