Supported by Innovate UK, UKRI and our partners JEOL UK and Oxford Instruments, Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) is hosting a series of free, business-focused events.
These quarterly Industrial Solutions events will show how different sectors (including those highlighted in the UK government’s Industrial Strategy Fund) can benefit from working with PEMC and will focus on priority areas for the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (HotSW LEP). The series will also support the establishment of an Analysis & Imaging Network of previous beneficiaries of PEMC’s industry support, intended to promote knowledge exchange and collaboration between industrial, technical, and academic stakeholders.We warmly invite companies to join us for one or more of these events, not only to discover what electron microscopy could do for your business but also to 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 is packed with useful information for businesses engaging with electron microscopy.
Our Industrial Solutions event on Tuesday 26 October 2021 focused on the food and drink sectors, featuring presentations on how electron microscopy has been helpful for previous industrial partners. We provided updates from the team at PEMC, shared insights on relevant techniques with our colleagues at Quorum Technologies and discussed upcoming funding and collaboration opportunities.
