Maltese science company, Evolve, has signed a three-year sponsorship with the University of Malta, a research agreement worth €75,000 that is being considered a milestone for scientific research on the islands.

Christopher Busuttil Delbridge, Managing Director at Evolve, said “This agreement is part of our strategy to become a thought leader in the international scientific and healthcare laboratory market.”

The funding will allow the University’s Electromagnetics Research Group (EMRG), which forms part of the Physics Department within the Faculty of Science, to conduct further research across a broad range of scientific areas.

Among the issues dealt with by the research group are how biological tissues act as a function of frequency and temperature, the design and development of wide-band antenna arrays for radio astronomy, and the measurement and modelling of occupational exposure to MRI static and gradient magnetic fields.

“I am confident that EMRG can assist us in improving the positive impact science and technology have on society. We are proud as a company to be able to give back to the science community, especially to the University of Malta which helped so many of our team members when they were young students with big dreams,” the Managing Director added.

Commenting on the sponsorship, University Rector, Prof Alfred Vella, said “What Evolve does within the healthcare industry, and what the ERG achieves to innovate and advance in the same area, makes this partnership a very congruous one.”

Owen Bonnici, Minister for Research and Innovation also praised the collaboration as an innovative one for Malta. “I’m sure that this three-year sponsorship from Evolve is only the first of hopefully other similar sponsorships of the many university research groups that are aimed at open-ended research, and not tied directly to a specific project.”
