Join this competition briefing event organised by Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) on 19th July 2018.

As part of the Industrial Strategy, the Government will invest up to £170M in the Transforming Construction: Manufacturing Better Buildings Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). The objective of the Challenge is to more quickly provide safer, healthier and more affordable places to live and learn that use dramatically less energy.

This ISCF challenge will bring together the construction, manufacturing, energy and digital sectors to revolutionise how we deliver the buildings the UK needs. Concentrating on:

• How we power buildings

This call will be for Collaborative Research and Development (CR&D) and will consist of a portfolio of projects for up to 12 month feasibility projects and up to 24 month CR&D projects which address the subjects being explored by the Core Innovation Hub which rates to how we manufacture, design and manage buildings.

The details and scope of the project is expected to be published by UK Research and Innovation shortly before the call opens on the 23rd July 2018.
This briefing event will include:

  • an opportunity to hear about the objectives and scope of the CR&D programme
  • an opportunity to learn how to get involved in the CR&D programme

This Glasgow event gives charities and those working in the technology sector the chance to connect via informal matchmaking - fueled by wine, beer, soft drinks and food. We aim to have a 50/50 charity/digital attendees split.

Digital professionals - this is your chance to meet a range of charities and consider joining one of their boards as a trustee.

Charity professionals & volunteers - this is your chance to find a tech professional who can help move forward your organisation in the right direction.

New and emerging forms of data from sources such as social media, sensors, and the internet of things have the potential to not only transform how consumers communicate about the food they eat, but also how they make choices about it quality, safety and authenticity. For producers and regulators these new data offer up a host of new opportunities around diagnostics, monitoring, provenance and fraud prevention and detection.

This workshop will bring together researchers, regulators, policy makers and food industry representatives to discuss how the power of data can be leveraged to transform the food sector and influence future policy.

Data in Health and Social Care

Sep 05 2018
External Events

Health Care in the UK is facing many issues such as the lack of adoption of data gather for predictive analytics in health and social care. This is exacerbated by the increased demands of an ageing population. In the future, systems need to be created in a way that are more patient-centric, and which allow for citizens to be cared for in a holistic way.

This conference presents some of the research and best practice within next generation health care infrastructures for large-scale data integration across domains and stakeholders, and how they could bring benefits to all involved. A key focus is on the capture and analysis of data across health and social care.

CodeTheCity 14 - Archaeology Meets Data Science

Sep 15 2018
External Events

Join us as we dig deep into the history of Aberdeen!

In 2006-2007 an excavation took place of St Nicholas Kirk. It uncovered over a thousand sets of human remains, a rich collection of artefacts, and structural parts of the building going back over a thousand years.

Much of the post-excavation analysis and research is still ongoing.

Using photographs, paper records, some physical artefacts, and a 3D point-cloud data of a scan of the interior of the church, the aim of this weekend is to

  • create digital artefacts, and create prototypes to interact with, and visualise, the finds,
  • experiment with technologies such as 3D modelling and visualisation of remains, recovered articles and the building itself,
  • assist public understanding, deliver educational benefits and increase awareness of the archaeology and the Mither Kirk project.

Whatever your skills or background you can contribute to this exciting project.
