Joe is also available to discuss training in composite materials and grant funding to support collaborative research and development.
Chris Hare, BA (Hons)
Research & Technology Manager
Speak to Chris about thermoplastic composites in their varied forms, their applications (including ballistics) and the manufacturing techniques that can be used to form them. Chris is also available to discuss tooling, recycling and closed-loop strategies for composites as well as bio-based composites in their many guises.
Ben Hargreaves, BSc (Hons), MBA, PhD
Speak to Ben about polymer nanocomposites; what are they? how do we make them? ...and why should we bother? Ben is also available to talk to anyone who is new to composites and looking for some guidance to help them take the next step.
