For practitioners


Researcher-Industry Networking Event

Collaborations between researchers and industry take many forms – from industry-placements and secondments through to research initiatives and careers opportunities.

This networking event aims to:

  • provide opportunities for industry participants to learn about some of the promising research in interactive technologies for children
  • offer a structured format for experienced researchers and early career researchers to explore career opportunities in related industries
  • explore opportunities for collaborative research initiatives.

The two-hour networking event will coincide with the ‘Demos and Art Installations exhibition’. We welcome interesting demos of technology for children from industry. At the event there will be matchmaking with researchers.
