High impact ICT research to tech start-up

The fast-paced world of Information and Communications Technology holds a wealth of opportunity for university research labs to create ground-breaking innovations with commercial potential. This talk will cover IP Group's view on the emerging trends in this sector and the technological advancements that will be required to enable those trends.

The talk will particularly focus on the evolving nature of human-machine interaction and the implications it has on all areas of ICT, from interfaces to sensors, from networks to security. Drawing upon case studies of disruptive ICT companies in the IP Group portfolio that have emerged from university research labs, this talk will highlight the potential for directed ICT research to create new technologies that could be scaled via entrepreneurial spin-outs.

Innovation ANU and the ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science are pleased to host Dr Mark Reilly for this exciting talk. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and networking, with a light lunch provided.

This event is free and ANU staff and students, policymakers, industry, consultants, NGOs and the general public, but seats are limited. Please register to reserve your seat. We hope you can join us.
