The sixth event of the series is fast approaching – Wednesday 20 November – and the theme is ‘clean energy’ – select the event below to find out more.

It follows hot on the heels of our Marine Tech event which took place on Wednesday 18 September, with a mix of delegates from industry and academia joining us to hear about the latest funding and support opportunities for the sector, not only from Innovate UK but also the Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC), another Devon-focused project aimed at supporting companies.

And, of course, industrial solutions in practice; PML Applications Ltd and Babcock International demonstrated how they use Electron Microscopy to support problem solving (e.g. weld failure) and new product development (anti bio-fouling).

For a PDF of the day’s presentations, please contact Natasha Stephen (please see below).

Supported by Innovate UK, UKRI, ZEISS (and funded by ERDF), PEMC is hosting a series of free events that will focus specifically on sectors identified within the UK government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, and priority areas for the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (HOTSW LEP). Companies are warmly invited to join us for one or more of these events on the main University campus, to not only discover what Electron Microscopy could do for your company but to also find out about the latest UK funding opportunities for industry; particularly SMEs. 

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