About the SCS Annual Conference

This year the SCS Annual Conference will be held in York, a beautiful and historical city, and the location of an exciting new Skin Research Centre at the University of York.

The conference will be held at York Racecourse and will focus on the high-quality cosmetic science being carried out in research groups right across the UK and Ireland, both in industry and in our universities.  It will bring together our leading scientists to share their latest discoveries and offer attendees a unique opportunity to expand their professional networks and build new collaborations.

This year there will be many additional features to the conference, including an expert panel debate on driving innovation in the cosmetics industry, a breakfast workshop on cosmetic science education, a pre-conference tour of the Skin Research Centre at the University of York, and a students’ poster competition and drinks reception.  Plus, as always, a lively exhibitors’ area.

Join us at the SCS Annual Conference to stay up to date and well connected.
