Discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business
Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) are relaunching their Industrial Solutions events for 2018/19. Supported by Innovate UK, UKRI, ZEISS, the University’s own Research and Innovation team and funded by ERDF, PEMC invites industrial partners old and new to join us on the main University campus to discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business.
Over the next 18 months, PEMC will host a series of events that will focus specifically on sectors identified within the UK government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and priority areas for the HOTSW Local Enterprise Partnership. Companies are warmly invited to join us for any or all of these free events, to learn more about our services, existing collaborations and future opportunities, and how your business could benefit. These events are designed to be informative, relevant and useful in terms of practical analysis, funding opportunities and networking opportunities.
Josie Gough from Innovate UK and Dan Philips from ZEISS will also be on hand to talk about the latest funding opportunities for companies looking to grow their businesses and take advantage of the government’s Industrial Strategy.
The Industrial Solutions event on Thursday 18 July 2019 will focus on the healthy ageing/biomedical sector, featuring a presentation from one of our industrial partners which will demonstrate how Electron Microscopy has been used practically in their company and sector. There will be an update from the PEMC team and Josie Gough will be providing an essential update on funding and collaboration opportunities from Innovate UK.
