ScotCHEM‘s industrial engagement series is an opportunity for our researchers and chemical companies to interact and find common ground to drive research and innovation with an industrial focus. This series is an opportunity for our industrial presenters to talk about what their company is doing, what their main challenges are and how they can interact with university based research.
The series runs each event in two parts:
- A 30 min presentation which enables the companies to reach the entirety of our network with a short and concise manner.
- 1:1 with the speaker (~15 mins), enables the researchers to make the initial connection and discuss research ideas that could lead to fruitful collaborations.
