Seminar at the Department of Chemical Engineering: From Lab to Market

June 16

The Department of Chemical Engineering is delighted to invite everyone to a seminar which will provide an overview on how to take your invention from the laboratory into the market.


Title: “Maximizing the Impact of your Research by Launching a Successful Spin-out Company“
Date, time: 11th of July 2016, 14.00-15.30 pm
Venue:  S building, S 2.56

This seminar is a great opportunity to learn from some good examples about how to start a spin-out company based on your own research (from making an invention and filing a patent to getting the first supporting grant, conducting market research, writing a business plan and inventing a logo and name).

Three academics who have successfully started up a business in the areas of chemical engineering, catalysis and clinical diagnostics will share their experience and provide some  valuable advices:

Dr Nuno Reis
(Loughborough University, Co-founder and scientific director of Capillary Film Technology ltd)

Prof Richard Holdich
(Loughborough University, Co-founder and scientific director of Micropore Technologies)

Dr Nikolay Cherkasov
(Warwick University, Winner of the prestigious ICURegrant)

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the event. No registration is required.
