This week we held the official kick off meeting for the MICSED project. We welcomed colleagues from the P&G Innovation Centres in Brussels and Germany to Durham to take part in the MICSED on-boarding activities. We held a symposium where 18 researchers working on a range of collaborative projects between Durham and P&G presented their work. Our ESRs each gave an excellent short introduction to their projects and outlined the exciting aspects of the research they have planned.
We also had our first Business Orientation session in which Dr Euan Magennis gave an overview of P&G’s business activities. Leah Holroyd from Epigeum gave us an introduction to the superb on-line training programmes that the ESRs will follow.
