Aston University is inviting representatives from businesses and public sector organisations based in the West Midlands to a research showcase evening on Wednesday 15th February.
This free event will provide attendees with an opportunity to find out more about the latest groundbreaking, innovative and applicable research taking place at Aston.
The University is advancing scientific and theoretical knowledge in areas including bioenergy, photonics, healthy ageing, language loss, leadership and organisational effectiveness. Aston is committed to sharing and implementing these outcomes with the wider community including businesses and other organisations.
The event is timed to coincide with the launch of the first 2 editions of Aston Advances – a series of publications which will show how research tackles some of the major issues that impact on individuals, communities and businesses today.
The evening will include short presentations from leading academics in areas including bioenergy, entrepreneurship and language used by female executives. Arrival will be from 4.30pm for drinks and canapés and the event will include time to speak with leading Aston researchers and to network with other attendees.
Peter Shearer, Director of the Business Partnership Unit at Aston said: “This is an opportunity for companies and public sector organisations to learn more about the research at Aston University. We’ll welcome meeting with both existing and potential partners to discuss potential future collaborations and how they can benefit from our research.”
The event is being held on Wednesday 15th February in Suite 5/6, Lakeside Conference Centre, Aston University, from 16.30 - 18.00pm.
