Sheffield Hallam University have a long and successful career of working with industry and their focus will be to showcase research possibilities and funding streams. Here are just a few examples of their working relationships with chemical companies ranging from large multinational to SME’s.
AquaLabs, a local SME that develop fertilisers and plant health products worked with Professor Neil Bricklebank at SHU to develop methods for the determination of active compounds in plants. The development achieved robust methods that can be utilised for further studies as well as the marketing aspect of university collaborations creating a more dynamic and competitive portfolio for AquaLab in the European market
WRD, a Sheffield based waste recycling company worked with Dr Jillian Newton at SHU to determine ways to optimise biogas yield from waste food produce. The findings of the study created knowledge that would significantly increase potential profits for the company
Croda, an international chemical company worked with Professor Malcolm Clench, SHU to develop methods for the study of drugs in skin. The project paid for a joint PhD studentship, who spent time between both partners resulting in the development of robust methods, published research outputs and further collaborations between Croda and SHU.
