KTP Associate’s new role helping to revolutionise fingerprint forensics

West Technology Forensics is delighted to announce the addition of Matthew Needham to its team as a Knowledge Transfer Associate. This marks the commencement of a comprehensive three-year collaborative partnership with De Montfort University of Leicester, where Needham will play a pivotal role in advancing solvent-free techniques for fingerprint enhancement. These innovative methods aim to not only modernize the field of forensics but also to critically evaluate their efficiency in comparison to the conventional approaches recommended by forensic teams.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) program, a pioneering initiative designed to bridge the gap between academia and industry, serves as the backbone of this collaboration. KTPs are renowned for facilitating creative and high-impact projects that have the potential to significantly contribute to economic growth. In this particular instance, the project boasts a substantial funding of £300,000 from Innovate UK, further bolstered by the support and participation of West Technology Forensics.

West Technology Forensics is thrilled to be at the forefront of this innovative collaboration, which is poised to set new benchmarks in the field of forensics. With the financial backing from Innovate UK and the dedication of the teams at De Montfort University and West Technology Forensics, this three-year journey promises to be remarkable, marked by innovation, expertise, and transformative results.
