ERDF Project CAYMAN: Launch Event

to - Norcroft Centre, University of Bradford

Regional SMEs, the University of Bradford are holding a launch event on 29 January for our new £1.5m CAYMAN initiative which provides free nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) training and projects to develop new products and optimise current manufacturing processes.

29 January 2020 8.30am to 2.30pm

The University of Bradford has recently received funding through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for a 3 year programme of work entitled Chemistry Assets for Yorkshire Manufacturing – Project CAYMAN (£1.6 m). This exciting project establishes new high-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) facilities at the University’s City Campus and is dedicated to delivering 30 fully funded Research and Innovation projects to regional SMEs.

The CAYMAN Launch Event will provide information about how SMEs can benefit from undertaking fully funded Research and Innovation projects with the University or obtaining free training and access to our new high field NMR facilities.

Presentations at the event will introduce the use and applications of high-field NMR in many industry sectors including polymers, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food, and how conventional and diffusion based NMR methods can become a valuable analytical tool for R&D. The event will also provide information to SMEs about regional and national grant funding schemes for R&D including KTPs and regional innovation funding and offer great networking opportunities.

Target audience: Companies working in the processing industries or developing new products in the polymers, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food sectors. Companies, academics or students wishing to learn more about new applications of high-field NMR.
