Sorry about the short notice, but the DTI are holding a series of meetings “TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMME INFORMATION DAYS, 24th November – 9th December 2005.
“The Information Days will provide delegates with the opportunity to hear from and meet with DTI Technology Managers and co-ordinators as well as network with business and academics sharing similar interests in the technology areas of the Autumn 2005 Competition.”
The competition has £63 M as prize money, aimed at business not Universities, though collaboration might not be impossible?
Venues range across the country, with the first in Edinburgh (I plan to attend):
* Edinburgh, 28th November with Scottish Executive – focus on energy
* York, 30th November with Yorkshire Forward – focus on waste minimisation/resource efficiency
* Manchester, 1st December with NWDA – focus on data and content storage, management, retrieval and analysis
* London, 5th December with EMDA Ð focus on design of electrical and electronic control power systems
* London, 8th December with Invest NI Ð focus on materials modelling
* London, 9th December with SEEDA & LDA Ð focus on regenerative medicine
