Event Details






  • Do you know where the technology hotspots are?
  • Are you aware of new technologies early enough?
  • Are you missing out on opportunities to expand?




As technology life cycles shorten and companies become more globalised, continuing to keep abreast of the latest technological developments is vital for the future competitiveness and even survival of businesses.




This half-day free technology showcase provides a platform for improving your technology intelligence activities to capture the information you need to support strategic planning and decision making.




The technologies will be presented by academics and researchers from the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS) with extensive understanding of technology development. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the technologies with other participants and researchers.




Who should attend?




Those who benefit from effective technology intelligence, including CEOs, CTOs, technology managers, business development executives, technology scouts, and investors.



Benefits of attending




The Technology Showcase will:


  • give you an overview of the newest technologies developed at the IMNS allowing you to improve your company’s current portfolio of technologies
  • allow you to gain the technology information you need to support strategic business planning
  • inform your technology strategy
  • provide you with the means to shape future research at the IMNS




Following the event, all participants will have online access to the presentations and posters shown.


Topics Covered




The half-day Technology Showcase will:


  • present a sample of the IMNS’ technologies by means of oral and poster presentations delivered by academics and researchers
  • exhibit the processing capabilities of the Scottish Microelectronics Centre (SMC) via lab tours
