The UKAN+ Early Career SIG and the Institute of Acoustics Early Careers Group are running a series of talks on Effective Collaboration between Academia and Industry followed by a panel discussion on this topic and on exciting current and future research in Acoustics. The virtual event will start at 17:30 on Monday 11th October, 2021.

The session on effective collaboration will include talks from

  • Prof. Barry M. Gibbs (Honorary Professor in the Acoustics Research Unit, University of Liverpool, Past President of the Institute of Acoustics)
  • Nick Sheppard (Technical Director, Thales)
  • Dr Antonio Torija Martinez (Lecturer in Acoustic Engineering, University of Salford)
  • Andrew Mitchell (Doctoral Researcher, University College London).

Each speaker will draw from their own experiences, through knowledge transfer partnerships, funded research projects and collaborative projects, to focus on what makes for effective and successful collaboration. Following the presentations there will be a panel discussion, opened by Kirill Horoshenkov (Professor of Acoustics, University of Sheffield), which will begin by outlining the recent UKAN+ survey on research priorities, followed by a wider discussion regarding effective collaboration between academia and industry and innovation and future research from the perspective of each of the speakers.

The event is taking place virtually as part of Acoustics 2021 but is open to all and free to attend.
