History of Formula Conferences

The first Formula conference (Formula I) was held in Nice, France, in 1987, initiated by the Société Française de Chimie. It aimed to establish a new discipline within chemistry that emphasized the structured mixing of ingredients to achieve desired product properties.

Over three decades, these conferences have evolved, addressing the increasingly complex challenges of designing and manufacturing products that meet precise specifications. This evolution reflects a shift from focusing solely on physical chemistry to incorporating engineering and technological aspects into formulation.

Recent Formula conferences have focused on multi-scale approaches to formulation engineering, emphasizing the importance of considering both the macro- and meso-scale processes in product design. The conferences have also highlighted the need for sustainability and recyclability in product development, reflecting broader industry trends towards environmental responsibility and the circular economy.
