We can help you:
- to improve your formulations;
- to avoid fouling;
- to avoid or cause instabilities in surfactant systems (emulsion and dispersion stability against coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, ripening; jet breakup; onset of gas imbibition);
- to characterize interface bioactivity (bio macromolecular interactions, cell adhesion and phenotype regulation, bio detection);
- to characterize your complex material;
- and many more.
How can we collaborate?
Initial engagement (online / offline meeting) to understand your business and to identify the problems you are facing. You will then have the opportunity to speak directly with members of the research team on topics of mutual interest, including project ideas. What could follow is:
- Light engagements, such as BSc/MSc student projects on a topic defined by the industrial partner and QMUL.
- Industrial in-kind support for academic-led research projects funded by UK research councils.
- PhD Studentships: fully or part-funded by the company, including 50% funding of studentship through the Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Biochemical Engineering.
- Collaborative Research and Development grant applications to offer academic support for industry-led projects via the Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership, Smart Grant and ISCF Grant.
- Consultancy route: get a dedicated team of researchers working on your research and development problem via this route will enable you to retain all the IP.
