We will provide you with a range of information on how to work with our scientists including;

  • Joint funding opportunities
  • Access to state-of-art facilities
  • Introductions and collaborations with world-leading experts
  • From student internships or highly trained personal exchanges to funded development and research programmes
  • Innovation tokens worth up to £5000 that can be used for collaborative work with SLS
  • Our research interests and technology platforms extend across the breadth of plant, crop, biomedical, drug discovery, biotechnology, environmental and analytical research.

 The day will start with short presentations about different types of successful partnerships that are possible, followed by a lunchtime networking event. In the afternoon, most importantly, we would like to hear from you about your needs and experiences so that we can offer solutions to help improve research, development, innovation and competitiveness in your company, taking advantage of existing and future innovation and investment opportunities in the UK. 
Later in the afternoon there will be the opportunity to meet with our researchers, tour our facilities and engage in extended discussions, including an evening drinks and dinner reception.
