Innovation brokerage workshop

November 22


There is a wealth of new technology and innovation being developed in UK universities which often translates into the development of new products in industry.  Successful translation and exploitation of academic research depends on recognising potential and forming necessary collaborations.  This SWIG Innovation workshop is designed to bring together academic research groups and interested companies to identify potential technologies, collaboration, and exploitation opportunities in the area of sensor technologies developed for use in water.

The need for new sensor technologies for water is often driven by legislation and the need for regular measurements at lower concentrations, or the need for more rapid or more reliable measurements made at remote sensing sites.  This encompasses a wide range of technologies that are used for measuring physical, chemical or biological parameters in or of water.  For examples sensors that measure water pressure, height or chemical and biosensors for measuring dissolved components, pollutants or microorganisms.  How remote sensors and sensor networks communicate reliably and securely, energy harvesting and data management are other important technology areas that form part of a modern water sensing system.”

Programme: Draft agenda

Location: The Edge Exhibition & Conference Centre, University of Bath, Claverton Down, Bath BA2 7AY

Directions & map:

Bath city centre is a UNESCO world heritage city, with restrictions on driving and parking. The University is out of town, but is easily accessible by train to Bath Spa station, and then a short 15-20 minute ride by taxi or U1 bus from outside the train station. Taxi is recommended for the journey up to the University as there may be queues of students for the bus at peak times, easier to get a bus back to the station at the end of the day.

Further directions are available from the University of Bath website

If you wish to drive please contact rosa.richards@swig.org.uk to obtain a parking permit – but please note that parking is limited on site and available on a first come first served basis on the day – we are unable to reserve parking spaces for this venue.
