Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre Industrial Solutions Events

Posted on: 14/06/2019

Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre is hosting a series of events to showcase how Electron Microscopy works collaboratively with industry.

The University of Plymouth’s Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) is hosting a number of events between now and mid-2020 to showcase Electron Microscopy and its relevance to industry. The series of events is supported by Innovate UK, UKRI, ZEISS, Plymouth University’s Research & Innovation team and funded by ERDF.

The Industrial Solutions events showcase how Electron Microscopy could benefit your organisation, specifically within sectors identified in the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. There you can learn about PEMC’s services, existing collaborations and future opportunities. The events are open to all, but are particularly focussed on the benefits to Devon-based companies looking to develop new products, especially within the fields of advanced engineering, photonics, microelectronics, manufacturing, composites, robotics or clean energy.

The next event on the agenda takes place on Thursday 18th July at the Rolle Building, University of Plymouth, and is focussed on the healthy ageing/biomedical sector. This will demonstrate how Electron Microscopy has been used practically by industrial partners in their sector, with the PEMC team and Innovate UK providing an update on funding and collaboration opportunities.
