Under the Spotlight – The Computational Foundry
June 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm BST
What is the Computational Foundry and what does it mean for industry and research activities?
Come along to this series of Lightning Talks, find out more and be enlightened!
Professor Alan Dix, the new Director of the Computational Foundry – a £32.5 million WEFO funded project – explains why the facility is a beacon for research collaborations and aims to attract leading researchers to Wales, placing Swansea at the heart of a thriving regional ecosystem of digital companies and research.
CHERISH DE, part of the Computational Foundry, facilitates a wide range of projects through a range of funding mechanisms. As part of this lighting talk, PIS from five CHERISH DE projects will give a lightning talk and demo of their work, and you can find out more about CHERISH DE funding opportunities.
Finally, Dr Sean Walton will talk about his new project – Climate Jam 2018 – a game jam focused on making games which teach people about climate change, running throughout July.
This is a FREE event set in the informal surroundings of TechHub’s Members Lounge!
