Pioneer groups – Alison’s blog Friday 26th October

Have just returned from a lecture on ” Gas leaks,bombs and chemical contamination : how lasers are revealing the hidden dangers ahead “. Dr.David Stothard explained how the academic study of the technology of photonics has developed into a commercial application which will deliver safety, security and economic benefit to society. I was struck by the parallels with our endeavours in the Pioneer group. Today’s topic of building a business model was directly relevant to the procedures Dr. Stothard had followed. I may not have understood the physics but, thanks to this afternoon, I could appreciate the need to understand the market, to engage in commercial partnership etc. Talk about transferable skills and you never know when learning will come in handy!!
