A Daisyphone, Virtual Cocoon and a ‘Smart’ house for people with dementia were just some of the highlights featured at our major research exhibition, Pioneers 09, held on 4 March 2009.
The event brought together forward-thinking UK researchers and business people. It included a dynamic, interactive exhibition highlighting examples of leading-edge university research from over 20 top UK research groups.
There were talks from director of the Bloodhound SSC land-speed record team, Richard Noble and a debate about internet privacy led by BBC science journalist Quentin Cooper, featuring industry expert Tom llube. We also held a Dragon’s Den style workshop where scientists will pitch research ideas to a panel of venture capitalists.
