Flomerics Ltd Knowledge Transfer Partnership Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group

The government-backed Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme is proving a huge success for Flomerics Limited.

The government-backed Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme is proving a huge success for Flomerics Limited, a UK software house producing design tools that enable ICT companies, such as Intel, Sun Microsystems, Fujitsu and Alcatel, to control the temperatures in their microprocessors and hardware. Flomerics is working on its third KTP in collaboration with the University of Greenwich.

Flomerics approached Professor Chris Bailey in the 1990s to explain its interest in the highly novel modelling software being developed by Chris and his team. Eight years on, this collaboration is continuing and growing with the University of Greenwich viewed as a core knowledge supplier for the company. The collaboration has also opened up research opportunities in micro and nano-technology which has resulted in over £4 million of research proceeds and a wealth of publications and awards.

Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group is part of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences, University of Greenwich.
