Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr John Baker. The Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry (KCMC) is a partnership between universities (Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, Southampton), STFC (Hartree Centre) and numerous companies. The KCMC is hosted by the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), part of the High Value Manufacturing
Manchester has established a very successful relationship with the KCMC over a period of 13 years. The KCMC plays an important role in knowledge transfer at UoM by facilitating R&D collaboration in Materials Chemistry between business and its research & innovation partners, strengthening their links with the broader UK innovation eco-system.
The presentation will describe the role of the KCMC and how John Baker, the Manchester Knowledge Transfer Manager, can support you in developing industrial partnerships for collaborative R&D.
