23 Jun 2021

In this talk, I will present how academia can play a leading role in developing innovation in industry and highlight some of the benefits and pitfalls of working with academia. Examples of past and current projects in the marine environment will be used to support our arguments. We will also present the National Robotarium, a recently created centre for innovation at the interface of academic and industry in the UK.
