The University Of Warwick’s School Of Engineering is working with local firm Converteam on research into silicon carbide is one example of how research partnerships with universities can help increase demand for company’s products.

Application of this material could potentially lead to huge energy savings due its properties as a thermal conductor. However, the intellectual property rights to create this material are currently limited to small number of companies.

This collaboration allows for more research to be undertaken on using silicon carbide on a much larger scale. The University benefits from access to material for research with huge potential and Converteam gains from any possible new uses and applications for its product.
