Goldsmiths Open Innovation Network Launch

12 Sep 19 — 12 Sep 19

Venue: Professor Stuart Hall Building - Room LG02, Goldsmiths, University of London
The Enterprise Office at Goldsmiths would like to invite you to the launch of Goldsmiths’ Open Innovation Network (GOIN). This initiative aims to provide a forum to build relationships between Goldsmiths’ academics and external individuals and organisations such as yourselves and to foster collaboration across activities ranging from student placements and KTPs to consultancy and contract research.

We will be holding a series of 4-6 events per year exclusively open to members of the Open Innovation Network. These may be themed around individual academic disciplines, research areas and/or upcoming funding opportunities, and will feature presentations from Goldsmiths academics along with representatives from business, industry and government. For our launch event we are delighted to be having a Key Note Speech from Hamish McAlpine, Head of KE Data and Evidence at Research England; followed by presentations from two of our most exciting academics: Dr Sylvia Xueni Pan in Computing talking about her work on an upcoming Peaky Blinders virtual reality game; and Professor Mike Waller, Head of the Design Department talking about the applications of neuroscience to the design process.
