Are you an end-user? Collaborate on your research
Promote your work with Specac
Specac want to champion end-users, because we are passionate about the work you do, with our products. As such, we are actively on the hunt for opportunities to work with professionals or students who are involved in interesting research, analysis, quality control, etc.
Collaborators will have the chance to:
- perform research with Specac’s assistance and have findings cited in marketing content, possibly an application note, which will be shared with thousands of people online, in print and at trade shows. Check out an application note we collaborated on with Mia Abbott of Staffordshire University.
- be interviewed on their work, to discuss the importance of the research, the challenges they have faced and more – a great opportunity for your department and your career. See an example, an interview with Sun Chemical on using our hydraulic press for over 30 years.
- be promoted throughout the industry, via Specac’s marketing channels; such as email, social media, print advertising and more. Spread your profile within the scientific community and beyond. Check out an email citing collaborator Mia Abbott's research, sent out to around 10,000 email recipients.
To promote your research with us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a simple brief, detailing:
- what your work involves
- what equipment you currently/can use
- why your work is important
In an interview with Select Science, Mia explained her 6 week placement at Staffordshire Police over the summer break and how the local police force had told her that mephedrone was a problem in the Staffordshire area. Mia had intended on analyzing legal highs and was more than happy to assist in developing new and effective methods for the testing of drugs, with a special focus on detecting mephedrone.
“Our machines are very old, but the fact they are regularly used and reliable is proof about the quality of them... We believe the presses we use to be around 30 years old and envisage using them as they are for many years yet. When they are serviced and calibrated they are always in good working order.”
Nuclear research using our Polarizers
We arranged an interview with Select Science for staff at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, who are using our Polarizers in conjunction with their research into nuclear fusion.
Promoted to various third party channels
We often promote our collaborations and case studies to various online and offline channels. These include print magazines such as International Labmate and Petro Industry News, as well as online such as Select Science and Azom.
If there is a particular channel you think would be appropriate for your work, feel free to include it in your application. We have also worked with The Student Room and others.
