Join us for the 
17th Symposium

Jesus College

28th August - 1st September 2022

Offering classic papers and in-depth reviews from leading researchers, the Fundamental Research Symposia have provided a valuable forum and collection of pulp & paper research since 1957. Taking place every four years and alternating in location between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, this is among the premier R&D events in the pulp & paper industry.

The next Symposium will be held at Jesus College in Cambridge over 28th August to 1st September 2022.  For the Keynote address, we are continuing the tradition of inviting a renowned researcher from the UK for a thought-provoking launch to the symposium.

Invited Perspective Speakers will replace the traditional review papers.  They will provide an expert viewpoint on the present state and future directions of their field, to promote innovative ideas and engaging discussion at the symposium.
