MEET THE TEAM > Joanne Rout

As Membership Director at NEPIC with over 30 years’ experience, I have an excellent knowledge of the industry and of research and academic institutions in the region and beyond. Contact me to find out more about how to benefit from involvement with the NEPIC Cluster.

I joined the process chemical industry straight from university as a senior research scientist, developing new products for a range of sectors including automotive. I held management positions in several of ICI’s and Johnson Matthey’s global businesses with responsibility for product and process development, project delivery, sales and marketing.

I have been involved with NEPIC since 2006, initially developing industry-education links and helping to drive the Children Challenging Industry primary school programmes, STEM Ambassador and similar initiatives. These programmes aim to challenge the perceptions of young people and their teachers about careers in science and engineering.

For the last five years, I have used my business and industry knowledge and contacts to support SMEs in the region with their innovation and business growth projects through programmes supported by public sector funds.
