- Industry-driven centre to focus on advanced propulsion technology
- Emphasis on collaboration between UK automotive manufacturers and the digital sector
- Consortium Building event will show how gaming technologies can be used in the automotive industry
Event: Digital Engineering and Test Centre (DETC) Collaborative project consortium-building event
Date: Tuesday, 4th October 2016
Time: 1pm to 4pm preceded by a networking lunch
Where: DETC, Loughborough University London, Here East, 3 Lesney Avenue (Off Waterden Rd), Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, E15 2GZ
The Digital Engineering & Test Centre team look forward to welcoming you to this, the opening of second call for collaborative R&D project proposals.
We will introduce you to the exciting opportunities in developing solutions to automotive design & manufacturing challenges using digital engineering, gaming, big-data, and high-power computing.
We aim to bring together the Digital London sector with the UK automotive manufacturers and powertrain engineers to begin unlocking the enormous potential for collaborative developments.
Our day will begin at midday with a networking lunch, and the main programme will commence at 1pm to cover the following:
- An introduction to the DETC, its aims and how it can support automotive and non-automotive companies working together in digital engineering
- An overview to this competition for funding, the scope, and the type of projects we are seeking to support
- An opportunity to pitch your company and ideas to the delegates, make new connections, and start new collaborations
- Hear about some exciting project ideas from DETC to seed your own thoughts around new collaborations, research, and project work
The Consortium-building event will feature well-known companies in the automotive sector, such as Ford and McLaren, and from the Digital sector such as Epic Games, Inition, and Majenta.
It will emphasise how, by collaborating with organisations in the digital engineering, gaming, big-data and high-power computing sectors, DETC will be able to help solve some of the upcoming challenges facing automotive in the fields of design, development, manufacturing, testing, validation and verification of increasingly more complex vehicle systems.
The DETC will demonstrate how, by applying rapidly evolving virtual engineering technology to the UK’s automotive sector, we will significantly enhance our global competitiveness and help to deliver the reality of a true propulsion nation.
Please note that due to high demand, we can only accomodate up to two persons per organisation/company.
