SELF-HEALING MATERIALS: Hallam’s project has received wide news coverage

The three-year project with the University of Bristol, which is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), will look into developing new materials made up of biological and non-biological parts which could be capable of self-healing, with MERI co-leading on developing the implementation and testing of these new materials. The story has…

Innovation Generation Gap

INNOVATION GENERATION GAP: Hallam lecturer’s project used as a case study to highlight how some innovations are being aimed at the older generation despite innovation often being pitched as a ‘young person’s game’ Packaging expert, Dr Alaster Yoxall’s specialises in the creation of packaging suitable for older people. His research found that 20% of this…
