Max Bardwell is the Strategic Partnership Manager for Life Sciences & Food & Drink within Partnerships, Local Engagement and Commercial Services (PLECS). His role focusses on the following responsibilities:
- Develop and enhance mutually beneficial partnerships with employers and the University
- Utilise the University’s talent, estate, skills, expertise and research assets to address industry challenges
- Supporting local economic engagement and partnerships with key stakeholders in Nottingham, D2N2 and the wider Midlands.
- Development of commercial services for external organisations, building on the University’s academic expertise and facilities
- Develop the University Sector Plan for Life Sciences & food and drink
- Set out the strategic approach for employer engagement in line with the University’s Employer Engagement Action Plan, and through engagement with employers articulate key sectoral challenges and opportunities.
Dr Max Bardwell joined NTU as part of the PLECS team in May 2018. Previously he was at the University of Nottingham working as the Research and Business Development manager for the GeoEnergy Research Centre (GERC). Working closely with the centre director he expanded the centres industrial engagement activity and was decisive in helping to secure the award of the £60m Energy Research Accelerator project. Before joining the University of Nottingham he worked as a business manager for UCL’s technology transfer company UCLB. At UCLB Max handled intellectual property for the Department of Medical Physics and Bioengineering; focusing mainly on novel medical imaging, diagnostic techniques and digital health. He also had a project management role helping to progress medical device projects towards achieving CE marking. Prior to working at UCL Max has worked in product development roles for almost his entire career, at a number of HEIs and spinouts. Designing and manufacturing components for mass spectrometers and their hyphenated techniques. Highlights include, a 400G impact resistant ionisation source for planetary penetrator missions, an atmosphere monitoring system for the UK’s next generation nuclear submarines and a self-contained tuberculosis diagnostic instrument for sub Saharan Africa. Max holds an MBA from the Open University and a degree and PhD from Nottingham Trent University.
