Open Academy to promote knowledge sharing for formulators
Open Academy is set to open its doors this October in Barcelona with the aim of promoting open discussion and learning among cosmetic formulation professionals.

The Cosmetics Design team will be represented by editor Lucy Whitehouse, who will be attending the comprehensive conference programme and networking with speakers and attendees with the aim of bringing all the highlights to our readers.

Organised by industry association Cosmetics Consultants Europe, (CCE) t​he event will take place on Monday 16th October, and includes sessions for networking alongside the extensive conference programme.

Building a future for the event

The inaugural programme includes various hot topics that are pertinent to the industry right now, including non-animal testing methods for next generation ingredients, software tools for formulation and regulatory affairs, and CPR, REACH and Brexit.

But the programme will also serve to build the criteria and agenda for future CCE Open Academy, with the aim of putting the event firmly on the map as a regular industry event.

With this in mind, the event will also serve as a platform to gauge the topics for future events, as well as helping to expand the reach and membership of the CCE.
