Discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business

Join the Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) team, Innovate UK and ZEISS at our next sector-focused Industrial Solutions event to discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business, by seeing how two industrial customers use it in practice.

The Industrial Solutions event on Thursday 7 February 2019 will focus on the engineering and aerospace sector, featuring presentations from MB Aerospace and Composite Innovations Ltd, demonstrating how these two very different companies have used Electron Microscopy in failure analysis and new product development. There will be an update from the PEMC team and Josie Gough will be providing an essential update on funding and industrial collaboration opportunities from Innovate UK.
