A Centre of Excellence with P&G, CPI and Peerless
(20 January 2012)
Durham Chemistry and Physics Departments have recently initiated a £14M research project with Procter and Gamble, CPI and Peerless systems under project "CEMENT" - a Centre of Excellence in Methods and New Technologies for Surface Modification and Cleaning.
Prof. John Evans from Durham said "What's particularly exciting about the project is the way in which we can bring a team of academics from different disciplines together to tackle projects which are extremely challenging, scientifically fascinating, but also have significant real-world impact."
"The Durham team of PhD students, post doctoral research associates and academics are really looking forward to working with the CEMENT consortium, and I'm sure that the partnership model of working we've adopted for the project is going to be both stimulating and productive."
