Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise
Our research has a strong enterprise ethos, and we believe that major advances in skin and health care can arise from bridging the gap between academia and industry.
We have a strong track-record of industrial collaborations. For example, we collaborated with leading sport clothing manufacturers to map regional differences in skin sensing across the body, to inform the design of sport clothing that improve thermal comfort and performance.
Also, we co-operated with global goods manufacturers to model the biophysics and physiology of wetness on the skin, to improve the design of absorbency products for babies and adults, as well as of antiperspirant deodorants.
Our group offers a variety of enterprise and consultancy services that can be tailored to the specific needs of your business.
We leverage our unique know-how on the thermal and mechanical interactions amongts the human body, products, and the surrounding environment, in conjuction with our cutting-edge testing facilities, to develop innovative, evidence-based insights to inform your product development.
Our PI Davide Filingeri has a wealth of expertise and experience in academic-industrial ventures and acts as the Director of Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise for the School of Health Sciences at the University of Southampton.
