Future Wireless Showcase and Engagement Event
The James Watt School of Engineering is open for business. That was the main message at our Future Wireless Showcase and Engagement Event, held on Tuesday, 21 February.
Future Wireless research
Academics, industry representatives and other stakeholders had gathered for presentations on the latest 5G use cases in health, energy and security, and cutting-edge research in 6G.
“We have a private 5G network across the campus,” a 5G Urban Testbed, said Professor Muhammad Imran. He is head of the Communications, Sensing and Imaging (CSI) hub and works with industry to co-create.
Other research presentations focused on cyber-physical infrastructure to deliver whole systems in energy, technology options for the currently underexploited terahertz frequencies, AI-based design and optimisation of networks, and more.
Funding for collaboration
The College of Science and Engineering has a large Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Keith Dingwall, IAA Project Manager, said the IAA can supply funding for partnership development and the flow of people and expertise between the University and partners. “Most critically we’re looking for partners who have challenges or opportunities.”
In her closing remarks, Professor Margaret Lucas, Dean of Research at the College, affirmed: "Our priority and focus is really about industry engagement."
Work with us
"It was great to see such an interest from industry and stakeholders," says Dr Qammer Abbasi, event organiser and Lead for the Connecting People Theme at the James Watt School of Engineering. "We are very open to working together, to make society connected and a better place to live."
Interested businesses and other stakeholders are invited to get in touch with the College's dedicated industry engagement team. They can connect researchers and external partners and facilitate collaboration.
