The TWI Innovation Network was delighted to welcome Professor Mohamed Abdel-Maguid, Dean of School for Science, Technology and Engineering from the University of Suffolk to the TWI HQ, near Cambridge.
The meeting, on the innovation centre model of TWI and potential collaborations, led to an identification of areas of mutual interest, including postgraduate activities, collaborative projects in the UK and wider Europe as well as regional developments that resonate with both institutions on energy, industrial engagement and innovation, as well as professional development and training.
The comprehensive tour of the TWI site and the innovation centres that followed enabled interaction on candidate themes and topics that a collaborative relationship can be built upon.
The diverse engineering activities at TWI and the international composition of the industrial membership demonstrated by the TWI Innovation accelerators have attracted significant interest.
The open eco-system for innovation that has been established at TWI enables close collaboration.
