The Early Careers Special Interest Group (SIG-ECG) is running an event for UKAN’s early career members on building effective academic-industrial partnerships in Acoustics (incorporating the second meeting of the Vibro-acoustics Special Interest Group). It will be held on the 8th and 9th April, 2019, at Imperial College London. We are inviting industry representatives to be involved.

The event is open to early career members and industry partners in any area of Acoustics. The keynote address will be given by Professor Barry Gibbs, President of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and coordinator of SIG-VA. Professor Richard Craster, Professor of Applied Mathematics at Imperial College, will open the event. The second meeting of the Vibro-Acoustics Special Interest Group (SIG-VA) will be held as a satellite event on the afternoon of the 9th April. For more information, click here.

The event is aimed at early career members who want to work in conjunction with industry and civil service partners in the short and long-term.  It will provide a forum where attendees can share their research and career ambitions and build working relationships with industry early in their careers.

Please put these dates into your diaries. Limited places will be available, and registration will be on a first come basis. There will be a nominal charge of £100 for the two day event, including lunch and refreshments.
