Dr Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter OBE and members of the Coltraco Ultrasonics team visited Durham University meeting executive leadership and 3 academic departments, in regards to the Durham Institute of Research, Development, and Invention and the Centre for Underwater Acoustic Analysis.
As well as meetings with current undergraduates working on a DIRDI project, Carl gave a presentation to the 2nd year undergraduates of the Physics Department to ask those who wish to join its applied scientist “Edisonian Commercalisation” team in ultrasound, acoustics, electromagnetism and information engineering.In a recent newsletter Dr Hunter stated about Durham Institute of Research, Development, and Invention and the Centre for Underwater Acoustic Analysis:
“In July 2021 our brilliant Physicists and Scientists established our new laboratory which is co-located with the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation, Department of Physics, Durham University.
In December 2021, after 3 years work, and the kind support of the Vice-Chancellor, his leadership team and eminent Professors of Physics, Paula Chadwick and Douglas Halliday, Durham University kindly agreed for us to establish our Institute. It will comprise a “Newtonian Discovery” Team of Theoretical Physicists to undertake fundamental research into the physical laws of our Universe, which to me God created, alongside a far larger “Edisonian Commercialisation” team to diversify our technological base in ultrasonic, acoustics, electro-magnetism and information engineering.On 17 December 2021 we signed the MOU with Durham University. I am most grateful to Professor Colin Bain, Vice-Provost Research, and Professor Jacqui Ramagge, Executive Dean of Science. https://www.durham.ac.uk/news-events/latest-news/2021/12/research-collaboration-at-the-forefront-of-new-partnership/
I wish to thank Julie Swinton, Christina Munn and the whole Research & Innovation Services team and Mr Andrew Harston, the Vice-Chancellor’s adviser and Director.”
