A round-up of upcoming KTN events for the Electronics, Sensors & Photonics community, including funding competition briefings. Updated 16th May.

EUREKA Collaborative R&D competition: Photonics for Advanced Manufacturing – up to £2m available

Innovate UK is investing up to £2m to fund UK businesses, Research and Technology Organisations and universities participating in collaborative projects conducting predominantly industrial research with partners from the EUREKA Network in Photonics.

The competition specifically addresses photonic technologies in order to improve processes and/or products.

More details about the participating countries, the in-scope photonic technologies, the in-scope industries and a link to the registration pages can be found here. The competition closes on 25th July 2019.

Our briefing event in London on 4th April was made available via webcast – you can see the recording of the webcast here.

48th Intelligent Sensing programme – Sensing in harsh environments, 21 May, Solihull

Following the transformation of the digital world, there are increasing needs for sensing technologies that can operate in harsh environments, such as those required for infrastructure monitoring in transportation and civil engineering, smart building, precision agriculture and those exposed to chemicals and other harsh environments in variety of industries and environmental sectors.  The UK has a strong industrial presence in many such industry sectors where sensors needs to operate in harsh environments.  It also has a vibrant sensor research community relevant to harsh environment sensing technologies.

In this one-day event, KTN aims to bring together industry-users, sensor technology providers, new technology developers and other relevant stakeholders including innovation funders, to network, share knowledge, to stimulate new ideas, develop collaborations and partnerships and to promote the innovation development in such sensing technologies in the UK.
