I was part of a team that applied for a grant from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), to develop beampipes for High Energy Physics made from composite materials with a Non-Evaporable Getter (NEG) coating, as part of the Innovations Partnership Scheme (IPS). IPS grants are designed to transfer technology and expertise developed from STFC funding to the marketplace in partnership with industry and other academic disciplines.
- I investigated alternative uses for the technology in other academic disciplines. I also identifying potential academic partners, and liaised with them in order to determine the feasibility of the alternative uses of the technology.
- I performed market research and analysis on the commercial possibilities of the alternative uses of the technology.
