Technology Pull-Through launch webinar

Thursday, 29 Sep 2022

Online, 10:00 - 12:00

Join our launch webinar to discover how you can use the NCC's Technology Pull-Through programme to help mature your academic research to transition to industry.

The TPT programme allows academics to show the impact of their research outside of academia, giving a demonstrable link into industry, and supporting Research Excellence Framework (REF) submissions.

During the webinar, you’ll hear success stories from previous projects, including how industry have utilised the outcomes. The key research priority areas for the NCC – Sustainability, Hydrogen and Digital - and how the TPT programme plays an essential role within these will also be discussed. There will also be a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about the application process and the programme itself.

This webinar will be held on Microsoft Teams, with the link to join being shared approximately two weeks before the event. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Matt Scott, Chief Engineer for Capability.
