Advanced Material Development Ltd is delighted to announce a new partner in its academic collaboration programme, having signed a framework agreement with the University of Surrey. This agreement will further AMD’s R&D efforts in the field of Materials Science and will complement its work already taking place at the University of Sussex.
AMD CEO John Lee says “Our opportunity to further our R&D reach by linking with the Soft Matter scientists from the Department of Physics at University of Surrey under the guidance of Dr Izabela Jurewicz is a very exciting step in the evolution of AMD’s business model – through funding a studentship in conjunction with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, AMD can continue to add to its notable successes to date in this field of R&D.
Dr. Izabela Jurewicz, Lecturer in Soft Matter from the University of Surrey, said: “This is an incredible opportunity to delve deeper into my passion of understanding and developing novel functional materials but at the same time tackling the challenges of ground-breaking new materials and addressing the problems facing the world today. In particular we will develop novel graphene-based time-temperature indicators for packaging to encourage waste reduction and increase product quality. I am delighted to be working with AMD and also grateful for the support of EPSRC and the University of Surrey in supporting this effort.”
