Professor Raffaella Ocone has been invited to join the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) UK Research Committee recently created by the new IChemE UK Board.
The Research Committee is chaired by Professor Geoff Maitland from Imperial College and it is composed of 10 members from both academia and industry. Professor Ocone is one of five academics chosen among all UK academics in Chemical Engineering.
The committee met recently for the first time in London and outlined its remit and involvement with the academic and industrial chemical engineering communities. Members will address the status, competence and development of chemical engineers and promote the contribution of the profession to the UK and global economy.
