Kent Innovation and Enterprise are running a joint network event with the DSTL (Defence Science Technology Laboratory , which is part of the Ministry of Defence) on the 29th November. The objective of the event is to provide networking opportunities, to find out about the MOD’s high priority/impact areas and to identify and develop funding and collaboration opportunities.
DSTL is keen to try out a different way of working with universities by bringing a group of DSTL staff from across different domain groups to the campus. This is the first time the DSTL is holding a joint event like this with a University.
The event will start at 10:00 and the morning session will be look at DSTL technology and research needs, and the Centre for Defence Enterprise. The second session will focus on a number of research areas, and will encourage discussion and feedback. A buffet lunch will be served around 12:30 and the event will conclude about 3:45pm.
This is an open event and academics who would like to find out more about the DSTL are encouraged to come along. Contact Lucy O'Grady if you'd like to attend. There will be a poster exhibition, so if you have a poster that might be of interest to DSTL, or would like to prepare one, let Lucy know. Finished posters would need to be ready by Thursday 25th November.
