Developing enterprise and innovation in Surrey and Poland

31.10.2007
A group of two academics and eight research and enterprise support staff from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow spent a week at Research and Enterprise Support (RES) department at the University of Surrey from 22nd-26th of October learning about the procedures and activities related to enterprise and innovation.

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.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
