Venue: Heriot-Watt University, PGG01, Post-Graduate Centre, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh EH14 4AS
We invite you to a workshop designed to explore how businesses can use new funding from the TSB Energy Catalyst program – www.innovateuk.org – and calls under the Ocean Energy ERA-NET initiative. http://www.oceaneranet.eu/Sites/1/Documents/84.pdf to work with Heriot-Watt University in the fields of oil and gas and renewable energy.
Chris Bagley, Head of Energy, and Viola Augstein, Operations Manager at the Knowledge Transfer Network, will overview the initiatives and how they can be used for technical feasibility, development and pre-commercial technical validation of innovative technologies.
There will then be a chance for attendees to discuss their ideas for collaborative R&D and to meet with other SMEs and members of the Heriot-Watt Energy Academy with the aim of forging research and development partnerships supported under the new funding .
The event is free and guests can opt to attend both sessions or just the morning or afternoon. A light lunch will also be served.
