Event description

Description

The aim of the event is to inform about nature inspired engineering and to show nature inspired solutions for industry in keynote talks and interesting showcases with ample time for discussion and networking.

We want to give an overview of the newly founded nature inspired solutions special interest group (NIS SIG) which is a UK network of Nature inspired engineering solution providers and industry problem holders that can benefit from Nature Inspired solutions.

Express your interest for an opportunity to present or exhibit at this event

If you have an interesting case study or new technology you would like to share with the wider cross-sector community, there is an opportunity for you to present at the event. It will have to include how this has been inspired by nature. Please ensure you express your interest in this opportunity while registering.

We will also be providing a space for demonstrator exhibitions. To be selected, delegates will need to send a compelling pitch outlining their exhibit and how it meets the criteria of nature inspired. Again, please make a note of your interest in this when registering for the event.

Once we have received your expression of interest, we will reach out for further details.

What is the NIS SIG aiming to do?

The aim is to convene people who wouldn’t normally meet; to learn, connect and explore opportunities. The SIG will initially focus on the application of NIS across transport, infrastructure and energy.

Joining the NIS SIG provides an opportunity to:

  • Discover how nature inspired engineering can help you solve some of your biggest challenges.
  • Seek support from the NIS community if you are a ‘challenge holder’.
  • Showcase your research and demonstrate your nature inspired engineering solutions.
  • Broaden your network and make meaningful connections leading to collaboration opportunities.
Register today, if you want to find out more. In particular we invite interested people from the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We would like a good mix of academia, industry, government, funders and policy makers in the room.
Detailed agenda to follow.
The Knowledge Transfer Network is collaborating with Heriot-Watt University in the organisation of this event of the NIS SIG.
