Virtual coffee: a fresh cup for autumn 2020
Since launching our virtual networking coffee chats back in March 2020, over 250 people have joined us in for a weekly, hour-long conversations. We took a break back in July for the summer but now it’s time to get ‘back to school’ and bring you another round of discussions for the autumn, taking us from September through to the end of the year.
Held on Thursday mornings from 10:00-11:00 via Zoom and hosted by CENSIS staff, each call has around 15 participants (sometimes less, occasionally more) to ensure everyone can chat and contribute. We don’t record them and there’s no presentation or sales pitch; just an opportunity to share ideas, ask questions and network. Afterwards, with your permission, we’ll share contact details with others on the call and make offline introductions.
Each week, we explore a different topic from business and practical engineering perspectives with interested guests – from developers and investors to integrators and end users – and everyone is encouraged to join in to ask a question, raise an idea, give an example of what you’re doing in the space just now, or what you might like to achieve.
Our chats have covered everything from smart homes to machine learning, remote sensing to cyber security, forestry to wearable devices, thermal imaging to manufacturing and many more.
Here’s what we have in store for this session:
- 10 September: Remote sensing for environmental applications
- 24 September: The future of the workplace
- 01 October: Hydrogen
- 15 October: IoT for ports and shipping
- 29 October: Augmented reality and digital twins
- 12 November: IoT for cycling
- 26 November Resilient connectivity for smart applications
- 10 December: IoT for asset tracking (goods and people)

Our spring/summer sessions were often full with a waiting list. If you sign up to a session, but can no longer attend for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may pass your place to someone else.
