If you missed any of Glyndwr Talks' lectures, you can catch up here. 

Can academia add value to SME and large businesses? The role of the modern University in supporting businesses with advanced Photonics technology solutions.

Professor Caroline Gray.

Professor Caroline Gray OBE, Professor of Enterprise, Engagement, and Knowledge Transfer gave a fascinating lecture in October about how universities can help the photonics industry to develop and achieve their goals.

Caroline outlined the positive impacts of the Centre for Photonics Expertise (CPE) research group partnership, which was a collaboration between four Welsh universities. Caroline also gave some case study examples of how the CPE has helped businesses to innovate, such as counting tiles for Welsh Slate, inscribing QR codes on Diamonds for Diamond Centre Wales, and UV sterilisation techniques for Space Republic.

If you’re in the photonics and optics industry and need help to innovate or turn your ideas into viable capability or products, contact Caroline at The Optic Centre to discuss your needs at c.gray@glyndwr.ac.uk.



'Rose West on the stand: judgements of credibility in criminal trials' with Dr Caroline Gorden

"This lecture will make you think about guilt and innocence in a different way and you may find yourself wondering if perhaps the truth is not what is, but what is agreed on."



'The price of a pint? Can Welsh alcohol policy do good?' with Dr Wulf Livingston.

"Much the same way that Scottish Government wanted to demonstrate their own impact in the world with minimum unit pricing, you can see that the Welsh Government is asserting in its own well-being agenda through minimum unit pricing."
