Overview

The Royal Society

This Industry Fellows College networking event takes place at the Royal Society on 23 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 return of the Royal Society Industry summer placement programme, 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. New to the College will also be the Entrepreneurs in Residence who were announced in March and will be spending 20% of their time in collaborating Universities helping to commercialise research and adapt courses to reflect skills needed within industry.

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
