Members of a consortium working on the GRAPHOSITE project provided an update on their work at an open workshop for the Innovate UK-funded UltraMAT project.
The workshop took place at Hughes Hall in Cambridge on 7 March and was attended by Sofia Sampethai from TWI, Nithin Jayasree from Brunel University London, and Harry Cronin of DZP Technologies Ltd.
An exhibition desk was set up to promote GRAPHOSITE and Sofia also provided a talk on the project while Nithin and Harry provided information on how they have been helping to progress the project.
The 30-month GRAPHOSITE project is based around the development of a graphene sensor that is able to detect defects and provide predictive maintenance information for composite materials. This sensor is more effective than existing solutions on the market and has attracted interest from key players from industry including Rolls Royce and BAE Systems.
The workshop was a good opportunity to promote the new technology and gain interest from other organisations.
The project, which began in August 2018, has received funding from Innovate UK under Ref. No. 104266.
