Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


CEB works very closely with Cambridge Enterprise in West Cambridge for the benefit of researchers’ development and research commercialisation. The hot-desking sessions return to CEB, an initiative launched by our Cambridge Enterprise colleagues last year. 

The aim of these sessions is to offer advice on innovation launch, spin-out set-up and intellectual propery to all our researchers and academics, helping them in all of the important aspects of commercialisation, from patenting an invention to working as an academic consultant.

Dr Gillian Davis, Technology Manager, and Dr Jennie Flint,Technology Associate, will be managing these regular hot-desking sessions at CEB and will be at hand to talk to all CEB researchers and academics at all levels, and with technology at different stages of development, helping them launch their research inventions into market, as well as to advise others thinking about consultancy.

Dr Flint noted: “The hot desking sessions are a chance for Cambridge Enterprise and the members of the Department to get to know each other better and encourage some spontaneous communication. If you have any questions at all related to commercialisation and consultancy then please come and chat to us, we’re here to help!”

The sessions return every last Thursday of the month and the first one in the new academic year is scheduled for Thursday 26 September, at 10.30 am in the Tearoom. Look out for the little tabletop banner they’ll have with them and go and have an informal chart with them.
