PEMC Industrial Solutions Event Series » Photonics and Microelectronics Sector

April 10th - 9:30 am - 1:30 pm


Discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business

Join the Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) team, Innovate UK and ZEISS at one of our sector-focused Industrial Solutions events to discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your business.

Supported by Innovate UK, UKRI, ZEISS, the University’s own Research & Innovation team and funded by ERDF, PEMC invites industrial partners old and new to join us for one or more of our Industrial Solutions events on the main University campus, to discover what Electron Microscopy could do for you.

Over the next 18 months, PEMC will be hosting 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 (LEP). 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.

Designed to be informative, relevant and useful in terms of practical analysis and future funding opportunities, each event will be brief, but packed with useful information to inspire.

Our Industrial Solutions event on Wednesday 10 April will focus on the photonics and microelectronics sector.

Join us for the third in our series of free industry-focussed Industrial Solutions events that are running throughout 2019 and early 2020, funded by ERDF. Featuring presentations from our customers Plessey Semiconductors Ltd and EFFECT Photonics Ltd, discover how these two companies have used Electron Microscopy in the development of new products and processes, keeping them at the cutting edge of their sectors.
