About This Event


This webinar series is designed for small and medium businesses to gain ground-breaking knowledge from leading academics in areas that are beneficial to help them grow by accessing research and innovation expertise. These webinars will help SMEs exchange information, understand how to integrate new technology to develop products and services and/or how to turn ideas into new products and services.

This third webinar in the series will focus on informatics and commercialisation and will be led by Head of the School of Engineering and Informatics and Professor of Software Systems at the University of Sussex, Ian Wakeman. In 2013, Ian became MD of university spin-out HiveCore Ltd. The company commercialised research on delay tolerant networks within the Digital Stadium project. Their work connecting sports fans is now carried on by InCrowdSports Ltd and HiveCore is now developing new applications for the technology.

Please register here if you would like to attend, links to join will then be sent prior to the event.
