Get Smart with GISMO – 10th September


There’s never been a more important time to look at the materials that make up your products and to find smarter ways to use them.

How well do your products shape up to the challenge? The first step is to put them to the test. The GISMO project from Lancaster University can help you to:

  • Test the anti-viral and anti-microbial qualities of your products
  • Understand material characteristics, properties and performance
  • Check the characteristics and effectiveness of coatings
  • Find new or alternative materials and formulations
  • Improve environmental sustainability
  • Validate designs and formulations using 3D and virtual prototyping
  • Benchmark the quality and performance of your products with other products
  • Incorporate smart materials or properties into your products

Join us to meet our materials experts, to find out about our ‘Materials MoT’, how other businesses have benefitted and the ways in which you can use GISMO to drive innovation and improve business prospects.

GISMO is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund with support from Lancaster University and the UK Government Northern Powerhouse.
