Get Smart with GISMO

Welcome to the GISMO website

Greater Innovation for Smarter Materials Optimisation (GISMO) was created to provide cutting-edge ideas and solutions to put businesses in Cheshire and Warrington ahead of the curve in the use, design and manufacture of materials. GISMO was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

We are no longer recruiting for GISMO, but are still keen to work with Cheshire businesses. If you have a business challenge and would like to collaborate with us, please visit the Faculty of Science and Technology Business Partnerships and Enterprise web pages and get in touch. Our specialist team will help you access the expertise, talent, and facilities you need.
