Our students have the opportunity to attend courses and events to support them gaining new Tribology skills and expertise in exciting environments along side other PhD students. Following Sohail Siddiqui's attendance at the Nano-Tribology school in 2015, two iT-CDT students recently attended the 2016 Nano-Tribology course at the Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen. CDT students were funded by European COST for the two week course, which covered eight diverse subjects

The IT-CDT is honoured to host the 13th Tribo-UK conference on 14th and 15th April 2016 in collaboration with the IFS at the University of Leeds. Our topic at Tribo-UK 2016 is Tribology in the Next Decade. Tribo-UK 2016 is an opportunity for researchers in the field of tribology to meet and develop a base for academic and industrial networking. It is also a chance to present and discuss their work with fellow tribologists from all over the UK. There will be 3 keynote speakers
