Chemistry Innovation Laboratory

What we offer



In the first instance we are keen for companies to contact us to discuss potential opportunities for Chemistry support within their business. Funding and resources are available to support specific projects with eligible companies. The assistance that we can offer a company is flexible to suit their needs and our knowledge base but examples of possible forms that projects can take include: analytical work, feasibility studies, consultancy and literature reviews.

Funds are also available to support short secondments of postgraduate students into eligible companies.

CIL will also support a series of knowledge transfer events providing information about key developments in chemical science and analytical capabilities, aimed at helping SMEs better identify how these may be applied to benefit their business. We are keen to learn the views of companies concerning specific topics for these events.

We are able to provide access to specialist skills, knowledge, equipment and new technologies within the University for all companies. Through the CIL project we are able to cover the costs of providing up to 2 days of staff effort to underpin this work for eligible companies.
