Interview with Janine Coomber EIRA project manager at the University of Kent

At the University of Kent, we are proud to be part of a UK Research and Innovation funded project specifically funded by Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund (CCF) EIRA (Enabling Innovation: Research to Application). Which is a consortium of seven universities and colleges (University of Kent, University of Essex, University of Suffolk, University of East Anglia, Writtle College, Harlow College and Norwich, University of Arts) supporting innovation in the East of England.

This ground-breaking project provides businesses with funded knowledge exchange across three key areas: artificial intelligence, biotechnology and digital creative.
