On 3rd September the CDT-EI attended The R2i Electronics Conference at the University of Sheffield. Following the success of the previous editions in 2012 and 2013 the conference provided the opportunity for the electronics manufacturing industry, research and development companies and institutional research centres to meet, review and discuss the best of the UK’s academic electronic research projects.The event was oraganised by the KTN and IMAPS UK.
The overall aim was to bridge the gap between industry and research and the conference was split into four sessions, Government support for collaborative research in industry, industrial fellowships, Spin-outs and Centres for Doctoral Training. Our new co-Director, Dr Keith Brown, gave an overview of the EPSRC CDT model and explained our innovative training programme. Following Keith’s presentation one of our 2nd year students, Ian Park, described his experience of the CDT programme and explained the aims of his PhD project, which is co-sponsored by Taylor Hobson Ltd.
