The TWI Innovation Network had its 2018 annual meeting on 4 July. The occasion was the third annual meeting of the network and this time included an exhibition by some of the network’s Innovation Accelerators, including many from across wider Europe; Turkey, Italy, France, Holland, and Luxembourg, to name a few, as well as a notable UK presence. The meeting, chaired by Dr Ruth Boumphrey of Lloyds Register Foundation (primary sponsors of the Structural integrity Research Foundation at TWI), had a number of invited speakers from the network as well as external speakers; including the Department for International Trade (UK), Angel Investment (Cambridge) and EuroMines (Brussels). This one-day event pulled together over 80 attendees from industry and academia and resulted in several collaborative initiatives that will follow. It also enabled introductions for new partnerships and relationships.
