We are super proud to announce that Dr Salman Malik, Asina, has been awarded a place on the Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence for 2022.
The Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence scheme is an exciting opportunity for universities and research institutes across the UK to develop cutting-edge research into industrial success. With twenty leading business leaders, entrepreneurs, and senior scientists chosen to be part of this prestigious network, universities can now benefit from expertise that could help drive new projects, initiatives, and growth.
The Entrepreneurs bring their own wealth of experience and knowledge with them to each university they work with.

Universities can look forward to working with these award holders as they help foster new practices and resources that could ultimately lead to successful outcomes.
