We are aiming to have a ‘soft launch’ of the Hub on the afternoon of the 12th November 2021. The aspiration is to bring together a number of business leaders and stakeholders with key University staff to start to build a community around the Hub and shape its operation.
The meeting will take place at the University of Southampton Science Park at Chilworth with a buffet lunch served from 12.30 and the meeting proper starting at 13.30 with wrap-up at 16.30. During this meeting we are aiming to start to scope out the definition of industrial challenges and identification of specific technical areas, formation of Special Interest Groups & capacity building, current collaboration/funding opportunities, pitching & speed dating etc.
Postgraduate researchers from the Centres for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems and Sustainable Infrastructure for Cities will present and discuss their current research in a lunchtime poster session.
