NODES Industry Day, Wednesday, 13 December 2017
Our first Industry Day took place on December 13th, 2017 at Durham University. The aim of the event was to raise awareness of our NODES group, to further develop our network, and to interact with current and potential industrial partners. The event was warmly opened by Professor Stuart Corbridge (Vice-Chancellor and Warden of Durham University), followed by an introduction to the NODES group by Norbert Peyerimhoff and Andrew Duncan.
Edward Twiddy (Atom Bank) and Gary Gibson (IBEX Innovations) opened the discussion with a session on Industry Perspectives on Knowledge Transfer. Four of Durham University’s PhD Alumni shared with us their experiences outside academia. These two sessions set the tone for our first Industrial Speed Dating event with four industrial representatives on Current Industry Challenges.
