Frequently it is heard from industry representatives is that university research often lacks relevance to their businesses. This issue is often quoted as a significant impediment to the success of the UK economy. This half day event, hosted by the IfM, aims to look at improving communication between the figureheads that are involved in research and development within industrial organisations, and those conducting research in academia.
Don’t miss this event which aims to explore options in improving, communication between research in academia and R&D within industrial organisations, through speaker presentations, poster board sessions and ample networking opportunities.
During the ample networking sessions, the academic researchers will then have the opportunity to engage with representatives from the invited companies with the aim of investigating the possibilities for cooperation and/or collaborative projects
