The key aim for the facilities in the Advanced Microscopy Centre is to support high quality research and training of personnel in the use of microscopy for the Faculty of Sciences.  However, where there is the possibility of working in collaboration with Industry, we are keen to collaborate in a number of ways.

The routes by which we can offer collaboration with industry include:

  • A session on a microscope with full technical support
  • In-depth analysis with expert support from our academic staff
  • A series of images and/or micro-analysis of your component
  • Consultancy
  • Collaborative research contract
  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)
  • CASE or fully funded PhD studentships
  • Expert Witness Service
