Industrial and Academic Engineering Experts ISLI to Attend 34th

The Edinburgh-based Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI) and DoRIES are set to attend the 34th annual Intelligent Sensing Programme (ISP), an event being held for the first time in Glasgow on the 15 November 2011.

Institute Director Mark Begbie will lead teams from iSLI and DoRIES (Development of Research and Innovation in Electronic Systems), a project designed to support Scottish SMEs seeking to develop marketable products, services or processes using electronics based enabling technologies. Joining an array of influential figures from the world of engineering and design, staff attending the event will be on hand to discuss both organisations' work developing cutting-edge wireless sensor systems for a raft of clients.

"This is an exciting time to be working with intelligent sensors. The field has taken some great leaps forward over the past few years, and we're now getting to a point where the potential for such devices is beginning to be recognised in dozens of industrial sectors from aviation to oil," said Dr Begbie.

"With the UK at a crucial point in the decision process on whether to fund a major national Technology and Innovation Centre in Sensor Systems, and with such a strong technology community in this field locally, this promises to be one of the most engaging and lively ISP events for some time."

ISLI sits at the critical interface between the academic and commercial engineering worlds, working with start-ups and multinational companies whilst acting as a technology transfer bridge between the knowledge base and industry. Focused on knowledge transfer in enabling technologies, their vision centres on increasing the value and extent of company engagements in high level R&D and this is particularly evident in their work on a number of high profile projects with brands including engineering giant Rolls Royce, Airbus UK, and AgustaWestland.

Attendees at the well-established forum for the communication of industry-focused sensors research, technology developments, industrial needs analysis and collaboration building will enjoy a series of technical presentations from the UK's leading universities, centring on innovative sensor technologies and their applications from large and small companies. An incentive for sensor developers will follow, with a range of presentations on the sensor needs of large ‘end user’ organisations.

The event, in association with the Scottish Technology Network, will also feature elevator pitch sessions where 6 different companies will highlight opportunities for new business collaborations in the development and application of innovative sensor technologies. As Scotland's leading technology transfer institute, ISLI works side-by-side with private companies to help them profit from the latest technologies and will be on hand to discuss future opportunities and how ISLI could best assist business interests in technological developments.

Designed to keep users up to date with sensor technology requirements, developments, opportunities and to facilitate effective networking and knowledge exchange, the ISP is a national forum for developers, suppliers and end-users of sensor systems and instrumentation.
