There were 31 participants who attended a virtual STEAMLab for Animation, Simulation and Visualisation on 24/2/21. For some, it was an opportunity to meet new colleagues or members from other industries. For others, they are now working together on research funding applications.
The dates for the future planned STEAMLabs for 2021 are being finalised with key stakeholders and keynote speakers.
In order to make it easier to attend these events, the application process will be opened well in advance of the STEAMLabs. The schedule for the application opening of each themed STEAMLab event is below:
Assistive Technology – (applications open April 15th)
Medical Science – (applications open April 22nd)
Industrial Challenges –(applications open May 4th)
Global Challenges– (applications open May 12th)
Sustainability, Low Carbon Technology and Materials Science – (applications open June 1st)
A further post will follow for each event, with event timings, links to the application and other relevant information.
So…….what is a STEAMlab?
The STEAMLabs offer the opportunity to meet new people from all disciplines and sectors, and to spend dedicated time developing novel ideas for research projects.
We will also be inviting relevant external attendees to contribute to the day. We welcome academics, NGO/business/government representatives who wish to contribute to having a positive impact through addressing the world’s global challenges.
Who should attend?
STEAMLabs cover broad themes to ensure that they are open to everyone from all disciplines. So if you think you have something to contribute then come along. If you think that they don’t include you then please have a conversation with your RDS Facilitator who can explain how your research could make a vital contribution to new ideas and approaches. In order to encourage wider partnerships, each STEAMLab will include academics from other universities, as well as representatives from industry and other sectors.
