The Duke of York will meet physicists, Professor Themis Bowcock and Professor Tara Shears, who were involved in the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN. The Department of Physics is celebrating 120 years of particle physics at Liverpool. They will discuss how new technologies developed to explore the nature of the universe are now making positive impacts on health, business, and industry sectors.


Researchers in the School of Engineering will present their investigations in additive manufacturing processes and rapid prototyping for use in the production of advanced 3D printed implants for medical purposes.

The IFB is the largest global concentration of business events during 2014. The University is contributing to the festival with a series of events, including a number of public lectures and a conference – Global Universities of the 21st Century.
