This Industry College networking event takes place for the first time online on 19 & 20 November 2020.

This conference will address cross-sector collaborations by bringing together past and current Royal Society Industry Fellows, Entrepreneurs in Residence 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.

The Royal Society Industry summer placement programme supports students to complete 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 former and current Industry Fellows and Entrepreneurs in Residence, 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 attending.
