The afternoon will kick off with 4 presentations from OEMs on key challenge areas for research.
Companies will present brief (3 minute) overviews of their business, their key challenges or areas of interest, and the type of research expertise they are seeking.
Following that, researchers will provide their own brief (3 minute) presentations on their research interests and expertise, and potential application to industry. Researchers are selected according to the relevance of their expertise to the needs of the companies presenting.
Companies and researchers who have been involved in previous similar events have expressed high value in participating. They cite new ideas, collaborations, funding connections, and R&D projects as some of the benefits. Representatives from R&D funding agencies will be on hand to provide information about their programs and other ways they can provide support.
Whether you are a researcher or company, this event will be a valuable opportunity for introductions, conversations and intelligence-gathering for your next great idea.
If you are interested in attending but not presenting you are more than welcome to join us. Please register under the Audience ticket for the event so we can be sure to accommodate all who want to attend.
