What’s great about ACTC conferences?
"It draws people from slightly different areas around tissue engineering. Those people, together in one conference, can generate new ideas."

About ACTC 2020 – Cardiff
The Advances in Cell and Tissue Culture international conference aims to create an interdisciplinary forum in which over 200 industry and academic researchers, working in cell culture can exchange knowledge, promote their activities and set up new collaborative projects.
ACTC has been running for 12 years with growing success. 2020 marks the 12th year of this annual event, and is set to be the best yet, with a great line-up of speakers anticipated across a diverse range of topics.
ACTC 2020 - Cardiff encourages all levels of researchers, from PhD student to Professor, from both leading industry organisations and academia to get involved and share their research findings with their fellow scientists. It is a great opportunity for networking.
The programme covers a wide range of interesting, relevant topics across a broad range of disciplines. This is a unique opportunity to bring together different groups of people to come up with new, innovative ideas and collaborations.
ACTC 2020 - Cardiff is great value! We keep registration fees to a minimum to encourage participation from academic researchers. This helps to bring together scientists from a number of disciplines, fosters new collaborations, and allows junior scientists to hear about the latest cutting-edge techniques and to present their own data. Registration includes attendance to all scientific sessions alongside lunch and refreshments.
Registration for ACTC 2020 Cardiff is now open and delegate spaces are limited.

6 great reasons to attend ACTC 2020
It was an ideal opportunity for my student, a junior researcher, to present some of her work in a supportive and sociable environment that is perhaps not quite as daunting as a large conference. Also, for me as a primary investigator to talk to other people working in the field. It is a very useful meeting to come to!
The ACTC conference is an excellent place to meet colleagues and hear inspiring presentations in a relaxed informal atmosphere. The science is front and center, and there is always something fresh and new to learn/discuss. There is a healthy mix of experiences scientists from academia and industry together with many young aspiring scientists!
ACTC is a small but well-attended conference providing opportunity for academic, industrial and commercial scientists to share ideas, technological advances and future visions in the field of bioreactors, human on a chip and 3Rs. This conference was a great platform to share current research and develop collaborations to drive forward the innovative use of advanced cell culture techniques and models. Overall, a well organised, interesting and relevant conference.
I liked the warmth and friendly atmosphere that was generated by the organisers (the organising team were super patient and supremely organised in going about the job of building and delivering the conference). The diversity of speakers and topics made a good platform for the sharing and cross-fertilisation of ideas.
