Around 70 companies contacted LEC’s Enterprise and Business Partnerships Team at the UK’s largest Environmental Technology exhibition - ET 2006 - held at the NEC, Birmingham.

It is the first year that LEC has exhibited at the event which is attended by companies such as ABB, Corus, Network Rail, N-Power, British Gypsum and Robert McBride.

The Enterprise & Business Partnerships (EBP) team champions the development of partnerships between LEC and commercial organisations as well as supporting commercialisation of LEC-based research.

EBP Business Development Officer Paul Tanner said: “We were really pleased with the response we received from companies expressing an interest in LEC, proposing new research projects and also enquiring about our Masters level teaching programmes.”
