Industry Steering Group meet for the first time

Yesterday, our Industry Steering Group Chairman Peter de Maagt of the European Space Agency welcomed fellow representatives of industry to Loughborough University for the first meeting of our Industry Steering Group. The team presented the SYMETA project and encouraged industry colleagues to consider the direction of the research and possible applications. The SYMETA project is keen to engage with industry in a variety of ways. Collaborations could include:

  • Providing in-support to fundamental research programmes e.g. professional expertise, access to kit and testing sites and the provision of test samples and test beds.

  • Knowledge sharing and the co-development of IP

  • Support for doctoral students

  • Participation in industry focused workshops

  • Industry-led research via Innovate UK

  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships delivering return on the investment and accelerating growth for the company

  • Consultancy and contract research

  • Undergraduate and postgraduate student research projects and teaching

  • Student placements and secondments

  • Staff secondments

The benefits of academic/industry collaboration are manifold:

  • Exposure to high quality innovative research

  • Access to specialist equipment and expertise

  • Co-development of IP

  • Competitive advantage generated through innovation

  • Product innovation

  • Stronger networks both in the UK and overseas

  • Profile raising

  • Maintaining pace with the state of the art

If you are from industry and interested in knowing more about engaging with SYMETA then please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
