CEB Industrial Networking Event, April 2016

Yvonne Armitage of the Knowledge Transfer Network

CEB hosted a lively Industrial Networking Event on the afternoon of 28th April 2016 in the TCR tea room.

After Professor John Dennis had given an update on recent CEB progress, representatives of 11 companies and external organisations came to give presentations on behalf of their businesses. The line-up included 2 spin-out SMEs, associated with CEB: Immaterial Ltd and eScent. There were also 4 large companies, an IP enabling company and 4 research facilitating organisations. Topics discussed ranged from automotive engineering to the Zika virus.

CEB's David Fairen Jimenez giving a talk on behalf of the prize winning spin-out company Immaterial Ltd.
One striking feature was the synergy between the businesses, despite their seeming diversity. Emerging opportunities for the department include student placements, job vacancies, help for spin-outs and future research collaborations.
