Plymouth Materials Characterisation Network Launch

August 24, 2021 -10:00 am - 12:40 pm


This launch of the successful ERDF funded project, Plymouth Materials Characterisation Network (PMCN) follows on from our extremely successful Plymouth Materials Characterisation Project (PMCP), which concluded last year.

Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) at the University of Plymouth has secured EU funding to provide free access to small and medium enterprises within Devon and across the UK until June 2023, and reduced-cost access for large enterprises too.

This free online event will showcase some of the successful partnerships from PMCP, with sponsor talks from JEOL & Oxford Instruments, and partner talks from Language Farm, Pollenize & Plessey Semi-Conductors. 

You will also be able to select a bespoke Q&A session delivered by PMCP experts on the following topics:

  • Materials/Engineering
  • Bio/Medical/Marine
  • Geo-environments.

Questions for the Q&A can be submitted before the event via Slido at: https://app.sli.do/event/wqtsprmi

This funding will allow unrivalled access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, including three brand new instruments in 2022, to help develop business and increase collaboration between the industrial and academic environment.

Target Audience

  • Devon-based companies looking to develop new products – particularly those who work in food, advanced engineering, photonics, microelectronics, manufacturing, composites, robotics or new energy.
  • Larger companies in the same sectors. Business groups (e.g. Plymouth Manufacturers Group, North Devon Manufacturing Association, Hi Tech Forum)
  • Business support organisations (e.g. HOTSW LEP Growth Hub)


There are no restrictions on attendance. Please book your place via this link.
