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.

This event series 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 12 February 2020 will focus on the geoscience sector, featuring presentations from some of our industrial partners to demonstrate how Electron Microscopy has been used practically in their companies and sector. There will be an update from the PEMC team and Innovate UK will be providing an essential update on funding and collaboration opportunities.
