This Industry Fellows College networking event takes place at the Royal Society on 24 November from 9am-5pm.

This conference will address cross-sector collaborations by bringing together past and current holders of a Royal Society Industry Fellowship and their collaborators.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss issues and successes, and hear about the wider work of the Society. Training courses will also be offered to participants.

This year saw the pilot of the Royal Society Industry summer placements, with students completing a placement with an Industry Fellow. We will be joined at this event by our summer students, who will present their work.

As well as past and current Industry Fellows, there will be a limited number of places at this event for others interested in the relationship between industry and academia. If you would like to attend, please email industry@royalsociety.org with a short explanation as to why you are interested in the event. As places are limited, we cannot guarantee that there will be a space available.
