10 December 2015, 10.00am – 5.00pm

For our next workshop, we’re joining up with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult for a day of networking, discussion and debate around four innovation challenges in offshore renewables: Offshore wind blade structural health monitoring; Foundation monitoring; Cable monitoring and Data analysis. The aim of the day is to facilitate parties interested in pursuing collaborative R&D projects to accelerate the commercial development of offshore wind, wave and tidal technologies.

For more information, have a look on our website.


MSc Sensor and Imaging Systems Project

Does your company have a sensor or imaging systems technical challenge addressable by short project? Are you looking to attract new talent in to your company or raise your profile with Scottish graduates, or perhaps you’re interested in extending your relationships with university research groups?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then your company could benefit from a three-month MSc Sensor and Imaging Systems student placement. Suitable for companies of any size, the placement could see a student conducting a company-defined R&D project during summer 2016 located with your company or a university research group.

Read our MSc Project Placement Q&As and submit your proposal by 15 December 2015.

Keep an eye on the CENSIS blog

Since our last newsletter, we have featured a blog post from Libelium about a smart beehive. We have also heard from Richard Murray of Innovate UK whose blog post titled ‘A World Without Roadworks’ featured quantum gravity measuring devices.

You can read their articles here and keep an eye out for further posts coming soon. Our theme is: ‘Who is Innovating in the world of sensor and imaging systems?’

If you would like to write a guest blog post to share your insights and knowledge on what’s new in sensor and imaging systems, please contact us.
