Event Description

Boost your career with industry partnerships

Edinburgh Innovations (EI) is hosting a series of Spotlight on Industry events to help early to mid-career researchers understand how to engage and work with industry.

During the second event in our series, we will be hearing from industry partner Tim Embley from Costain and Maurizio Tomasella and Roberto Rossi from the University of Edinburgh to learn how they successfully worked together on a project funded through the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account and how it enabled this collaboration to flourish and lead to further projects.

This event provides a unique opportunity to hear about an ongoing collaboration from both the company and the academics involved as well as the opportunity to ask questions, meet with EI staff to discuss projects and funding, and network over a drink and pizza.
