IMRP 17 - Shanghai 2013


The Board and Management of iiA are delighted to announce that the next International Meeting on Radiation Processing (IMRP) will be held in Shanghai PRC in early November 2013.

Commenting on the announcement John Masefield, iiA Chairman, said that "Shanghai, the Regional Sponsors and the Chinese Nuclear Society has demonstrated a strong commitment to both IMRP and to iiA. This liaison will enable us to bring you another world class IMRP in 2013" .

China is now the fastest growing market for radiation processing and the Chinese healthcare market continues to demonstrate significant expansion.

The Joint Regional Sponsors for IMRP 17 are Dasheng and SQHL. Dasheng is a relative newcomer to the irradiation industry but is a company that has achieved significant growth since its President Kenneth Hsiao first learnt about the capabilities of electron beam processing at IMRP 15 in London. SQHL, under the leadership of IMRP Laureate Professor Wang Chuanzhen is an increasingly well known manufacturer of gamma irradiation plants.

Paul Wynne is the Chairman of the Organising Committee with Mr Wang Delin and Pr Zhu Nankang as joint Vice Chairmen of this Committee. Byron Lambert has been appointed Chair and Pr Wang Chuanzhen is Vice Chair of the Program Committee.
