Alongside these talks, delegates will also hear from the winners of The Engineer’s inaugural Collaborate To Innovate awards.

Chosen by a judging panel made up of some of the UK’s most senior and respected engineers these winning entries beat off stiff competition to demonstrate excellence in engineering collaboration and innovation.

Winners presenting at the conference include the team behind the UK’s new Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier; the Rolls Royce engineers behind the latest advanced in jet engine technology; and the team behind SPECIFIC – a world leading smart building demonstrator. You can read the full list of winners here.

Delegates will hear first hand about what makes these projects so special, and gain valuable insight into how collaboration between different organisations, cultures, and disciplines can be managed.

Crucially, lessons will be learned that can be applied across all sectors, with presenters help delegates to understand the pitfalls, challenges and rewards of working with specialists from other sectors.

With a strong emphasis on the value of academic and commercial collaboration, presentations will also provide valuable advice on how businesses can most effectively tap into the skills and expertise of the UK’s academic research base.
