Find out how robots are revolutionising the way we harvest our food, the link between social media and floods and why high performance computing needs to be energy efficient.

Join members of the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics for an exploration of the latest research carried out at the University of Plymouth in robotics, physics and data science and how these sectors play a role in the economy.

Miranda Addey, South West Regional Manager of the Institute of Physics, will share her perspective on the importance of physics to the economy.
Learn more about innovative science in these fields, including potential collaborative opportunities.

The event features researchers working on projects via the ERDF-funded Agri-Tech and the Environmental Futures and Big Data Impact Lab.

Who is this event for?

This event will be of most interest to those who research, study or work in sectors related to physics, data science, robotics, technology, innovation, software development, energy consumption in technology. It may also be suitable for general public with an amateur interest in the sciences.


This event is open to all and free to attend. It will be hosted online and you will receive a joining link to the email you provide at registration before the event begins.
