Based in London’s East End, QMUL adds a diversified presence to the consortium (which stretches from London to Oxford and Southampton) with its strengths in research growth complementing and enhancing our capabilities as a consortium. Representing QMUL on the board of PVC’s is Prof. William J Spence (Vice-Principal for Research, Queen Mary University of London). Upon the successful joining of SES, Prof. Spence expressed that:
“We very much look forward to being a part of the consortium – fresh collaboration and sharing arrangements will offer significant new opportunities to us at QMUL and add to the existing range of joint work with our partners”
