Nicola Ellis and Andrew Wilson began working with the superalloys materials science department by invitation of Deputy Director of the Materials Performance Centre and the Nuclear Rolls-Royce University Technology, Professor Michael Preuss in (date?). Activity to date has included Nicola and Andrew attending cross-departmental PHD and Postdoc research feedback meetings, providing a non- specialist presence to which presenters explained their research and approach. Postdoc students then lead tours of the university departments, and the welding facility was identified as the site of most potential for further Para-lab activity. The covid19 pandemic prevented the next phase of placement activity in the welding facility. This project is now on hold.
