NW CAM PhD Researchers

The North West Centre for Advanced Manufacturing (NWCAM) held an event in Derry~Londonderry to give its industrial and academic partners the chance to share insights and showcase their ongoing research projects.

The PhD students featured are based at Ulster University, work exclusively with an industrial partner to create new products and processes to improve the business partners’ competitive ability.

The projects involve both parties working on creating innovative new materials and understanding processes to create new knowledge, this is contributing to academic understanding of specific themes within advanced manufacturing.

As lead partner of the consortium, Catalyst Inc feel it is important to share their research projects within the local business ecosystem. 

NWCAM Project ManagerClaire McCaffery said, “Every NW CAM researcher plays an essential role in investigating and solving industrial based problems. Each researcher is working on a unique project however jointly NW CAM is achieving project level objectives such as researcher years and completing PhD graduates which is feeding into the Catalyst Inc vision for 2030 for the knowledge economy.”

The NW CAM body of researchers are based across Ulster University, University of Glasgow, IT Sligo and Letterkenny Institute each partnering with an industrial partner, including Armstrong Medical, Denroy, Leckey, LPE, Nuprint, Causeway Sensors, Axial3D, Abbott and gsk.
