The visitors met the staff of RES and, amongst others, Prof. Ian Kitchen, Prof. Susanna Hourani, Dr. Walter Wehrmayer, Prof. Colin Grant, Mr. Charles Croker and Dr. Malcolm Parry (Director of the Surrey Science Park). During the week they also visited the Surrey Enterprise Hub, Isis Innovation, Oxford Innovation and Hastings& Bexhill Hub courtesy of Jim Christy of SEEDA.
This visit was the result of RES’s collaboration with the Jagiellonian University’s Centre for Innovation and Technology Transfer (CITTRU) department in the GROW project ‘Bridging Business and Science’ (BBaS – see www.growbbas.com).
The €7.5 M SEEDA-led collaborative INTERREG IIIc program GROW project involved 5 EU regions (South East England, Malopolska, Noord Brabant, Emilia Romagna and Andalusia) RES coordinated one of the 16 successful projects aimed at research collaboration of university academics and SMEs.
It is expected that Surrey’s collaboration with the Jagiellonian University will develop in the next few years in the areas of enterprise and innovation, technology transfer, life long learning and research under the FP7.
The Jagiellonian University in Krakow was founded in 1364 and is one of the oldest universities in Europe as well as being one of the leading Polish Higher Education institutions. The visit was supported by the EU Leonardo training programme.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
