The Open University is hosting two Industry Consultation Workshops as part of the OU Space Sensing Technologies Programme, aiming to stimulate discussions around the next generation of remote sensing and point of interest sensing in challenging environments.
– The first consultation, taking place on the 5th of June, hosted for companies in the Healthcare Diagnostics sector, focuses on the development of robust, portable and easy-to-use diagnostic devices that can be deployed in hospitals, surgeries and in the home and operated by non-specialists. For example, the OU has undertaken a number of projects using mass spec and hyperspectral imaging in medical diagnostics.
– The second consultation, taking place on the 17th of June, hosted for companies interested in Environmental Monitoring, focuses on the role of environment in the wider Civil Resilience agenda and the sensing / monitoring requirements needed to help manage future environmental impacts on society. For example, the OU is involved with a monitoring programme which gives advanced warning of volcanic eruptions to local populations.
The two workshops aim to consult with industry on future sensing and monitoring challenges, and showcase of the departmental facilities and infrastructure.
Benefits of attending:
– Gain insights in future challenges and solutions for environmental monitoring in the wider context of environmental impacts on society and civil resilience
– Gain more information on novel technologies and research by Open University scientists
– Explore the formation of collaborations with the OU for future work
During the day, there will be opportunity to meet Open University technical team, visit the site and informally discuss technical ideas and opportunities for funding with The Open University researchers.
Registrations will open at 9.30am for the 10.00am start. Event will finish at 3.00pm.
Both Industry Consultation Workshops will be held in The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA
