Short research or consultancy programmes

We accept commisions to undertake an agreed paper study or programme of research, spanning typically a few days or weeks. For example, this may involve evaluating materials using a particular technique or instrument, or to examine the potential benefits of a more extensive research programme.

Research projects/programmes

Industrial sponsors of research programmes are invited to fund studies at post graduate or post doctoral level.
