The Faculty of Engineering, Research Showcase event will take place this year on Monday 13 April from 2.00pm-5.30pm, to be followed by a drinks and canapés networking reception from 5.30pm-7.30pm (Merchant Venturers Building, Woodland Road, Bristol). This event has proved to be a great way for Engineering to cement and develop existing partnerships with industry, and to start new collaborations.

If you would like to join us, please email, stating which parts of the event you will attend, your company and job title. Please do also tell any colleagues in your company you think might be interested in attending.

The event is an opportunity for our leading academics to present in person the latest research we are doing to you, our industry partners. For the first time we are presenting our research by industry sector - both in presentations and in the exhibition and demonstration areas. This should make it straightforward for you to engage with the research that is relevant to your company.
