ImpactQM is a unique £2.9 million EPSRC-funded project, designed and hosted by Queen Mary. The aim of the project was to raise a new generation of science and engineering professional – one who is equally at home in both academia and in industry – as well as kick-start some exciting new collaborations.
The funding period for ImpactQM ended in 2013; this page captures some of the project highlights.
