In June, senior University of Wollongong (UoW) researcher David Officer spent a month at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) discussing with DeMANS researchers the material and printing capabilities in the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute and TRICEP, and how visits by DeMANS researchers to UoW will benefit their projects. In particular, he worked with early stage researcher researcher Annaël Sort-Montenegro, a 2022 secondee to UoW, who is working with the UoW-developed 3D REDI printer that was provided by UoW to TCD as part of the DeMANS collaboration. In addition, he gave a lecture on the latest materials, bioploymer and printer developments at UoW to a wider TCD audience that included DeMANS researchers.
During his secondment, David visited the two DeMANS commercial partners (WAZP in Tralee and Logitech in Cork) to better understand their involvement in the DeMANS project and their commercial need for sustainable materials and additive manufacturing as well as share the UoW capabilities in these areas. He also took the opportunity while in the Northern Hemisphere to discuss the future direction of the UKW and UoW interactions and secondments with UKW DeMANS researcher Tomasz Jüngst.
Overall, this visit was extremely valuable in being able to meet with other members of the DeMANS project, assess the direction of the collaborations and plan future secondments.
