Queen Mary, University of London has launched a ground-breaking knowledge transfer project, which aims to create a new generation of science and engineering professional - one who is equally at home in both academia and in industry.
With funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the scheme will link early career researchers with selected industry partners, allowing them to work on projects which transfer Queen Mary’s leading edge EPSRC funded research into business, exploiting our existing strengths in materials, electronic and mechanical engineering, and computer science.
In turn, the early career researchers will be mentored in the skills required to transfer research into economic impact for the UK, leading to a new breed of researcher with both the technical and business abilities to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment.
The RADAR group is managing two interdisciplinary forums arising out of ImpactQM, the Forum for Medical Innovation and Risk, and the Forum for Security and Defence Risk. The RADAR contact for these two forums is Dr William Marsh.
