Congratulations to seven EPC members on securing a place in the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Industrial Secondment scheme. The scheme will see them spending up to 12 months working onsite with an industrial partner, collaborating on a project with a direct industrial application.
The secondment scheme, say the Academy, provides a valuable opportunity to establish strategic partnerships between industry and academia based on collaborative research projects, facilitating knowledge transfer and enabling academics to gain first-hand experience of working in an industrial environment.
