Event description
This a unique opportunity for investors and industry to access public sector science & technology innovation and to build new collaborations

About this Event

Ground breaking innovation from the UK public sector

The UK public sector is full of great ideas and new technologies and has a history in developing cutting-edge science and innovation. NPL’s Innovation Showcase is a chance to hear directly from the scientists and innovators at the forefront of emerging trends, from space and energy to agriculture, computing and health. It will demonstrate how this deep science within government can have positive impacts on society and the world.

By bringing together a broad network of interested parties, from policy makers and academics to entrepreneurs and investors, the Innovation Showcase will promote new relationships across old boundaries. These collaborations will move original technologies forward, generating new social, economic and financial benefits.

Ideas that can change the world

Hear stories and experiences from people who have developed innovative technologies or are in the process of doing so. In a fast paced format, three themed sessions are devoted to hearing about the potential of new technology and how innovation works in practice.

  • The future of healthcare: new medicines and treatment, robot surgery and health apps
  • Space and the environment: agritech, satellite observation and automated transport
  • Next generation computing and technology: quantum computing, fusion energy and artificial intelligence

Get hands-on

Organisations with new technology and science will be showcasing their ideas on exhibition stands throughout the day. Come and talk to innovators in person.

Hear from the experts

Our experts will be running sessions to cover funding and investment and how to collaborate across both the public and private sector to develop new technologies.

Guaranteed to inspire

The day will be hosted by Oli Barrett who is an expert in making ‘valuable connections between people and ideas’.
