Save event

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

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.

We have a terrific line-up of speakers for our Industrial Solutions event on Thursday 18 July 2019, which focuses on the healthy ageing and biomedical sectors. Not only do we have two of our industry customers talking about how EM has made a real difference in their companies, but also funding and support opportunities for those in the sectors, or, importantly, looking to enter the sectors.
