Materials Science and Engineering Defined: Creativity in Materials Science, Invention, Innovation - Innovation Sells.

Materials Science and Engineering Defined: Creativity in Materials Science, Invention, Innovation - Innovation Sells.


This series of posts arise from a pointer from my latest September 2010 Issue of Materials World, Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (IOM3) house journal, Materials World (MW). Our professional development p.19, reported on (improving) "Connecting research with creativity" the article title. The work is supported by the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) who first brought together together 15 senior academics in order to get strategic input on what was required to free creativity in research.
