It’s BACK!

Following on from its successful launch in May, the Deep Tech Network series returns, representing an exciting opportunity to convene the businesses, academics and entrepreneurs using science, technology and engineering to combat global challenges.

The Deep Tech Network was launched by Imperial College London’s Chemistry department, Enterprise Division and Upstream. Our intention is to encourage interaction and collaboration between business and Imperial’s researchers and to develop a deep-tech innovation ecosystem around Imperial’s White City campus.

In Autumn 2018 Chemistry became the first of Imperial’s departments to move from South Kensington to White City, taking up residence at the Molecular Sciences Research Hub (MSRH). The MSRH brings together nearly 800 scientists, clinicians, engineers and business partners and houses the equipment and infrastructure to support a twenty-first-century approach that can address common challenges in areas such as energy, healthcare, and sustainability.

Over the Deep Tech Network series, we are inviting speakers from a range of sectors ranging from biotech, pharma, medtech, energy, cleantech and greentech materials and industrial biotech, consumer goods, food and agri-tech, fintech, telecommunications and defence.

15:30 Registration and networking over refreshments (MSRH)
16:00 Short talks by Imperial College academics, industry and startups.
17:45 Networking drinks @ Central Working White City (next to MSRH)
19:30 Event ends
Confirmed Speakers: Dr Agi Brandt-Talbot, Chrystalix Technologies; Dr Tony Collins, DASA; George Frodsham, MediSieve; David Height, Mitsui Fudosan; Giulia Mengotti, SweetGen; Helene Steiner, Open Cell, Louise Walport, Imperial College London. More speakers to be announced shortly!

A big thank you to our friends at BBSRC and Central Working White City for kindly hosting and sponsoring the Deep Tech Network’s post-talk drinks.
