As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, in my role as the Creative Industries KTN‘s Convergence Theme Champion, I’m currently helping to promote the third “challenge” in the Technology Strategy Board’s Convergence R&D funding competition. You can read about the competition in detail on the TSB website.

We’re taking a little mini-tour of the UK over the next couple of weeks; at each event, Jeremy Silver – a colleague one way and another for over twenty years! – will be giving a briefing on the technicalities of the competition, I’ll be hosting a panel discussion to stimulate some thinking about the area in general and we’ll have a previously successful TSB applicant talk us through their experience.

Here’s the schedule:

Monday, October 15: The Light, LiverpoolEvent details.

Tuesday, October 16: Ulster University, BelfastEvent details.

Wednesday, October 23: Wallacespace, LondonEvent details.

The events are, of course, free and all kick off at 10.30 and run through to 1.30 when we’ll be serving a bit of lunch. I hope to see some of you at one or other of the events, which you can register for on the CI KTN website.
