Our group has been active in developing new approaches to outreach to industry and to the wider public.
1n 1996, with the help of the Gatsby Foundation, we appointed Dr Paul Hamley, as Technology Transfer Scientist, a senior postdoctoral researcher whose remit was to promote collaboration with industry and carry out proof of principle experiments. This post became self-financing has now evolved into a Business Partnership Unit within the School of Chemistry and the SWIFT training network.
In 2004, EPSRC support enabled us to appoint Dr Samantha Tang, as Public Awareness Scientist, to catalyse the participation of all members of our group in science outreach activities. These activities now involve researchers and staff right across the School of Chemistry.
