Lancaster University's position at the cutting edge of innovation in science and technology has been underlined by a major new partnership with QinetiQ, a leading defence security and technology company.
The strategic partnership will allow QinetiQ to access the expertise of the University of Lancaster - one of the UK's top research-led universities and maintain an active involvement in its latest research innovations, in particular Nanoelectronics, Micro and Nano systems Engineering, Communications, Electronics vulnerability to radiation and Human-Centre research for technical design and evaluation.
In return QinetiQ, which has a strong UK customer base and is expanding in the USA, will provide expertise on technology transfer. This could involve advice on understanding market requirements, identifying customer needs, bidding for and managing projects for major customers or applying science and technology to new markets.
