The Innovation Showcase

This is a unique opportunity for investors and industry to access public sector science & technology innovation and to build new collaborations

Ideas that can change the world

Hear stories and experiences from people who have developed innovative technologies or are in the process of doing so.  In a fast paced format, three themed sessions are devoted to hearing about the potential of new technology and how innovation works in practice.

  1. The future of healthcare
    • Saving millions of lives globally through an innovative sepsis test
    • Pioneering ultrasound breast imaging systems to improve cancer outcomes
    • Development and evaluation of a novel voice user interface app for young people with speech challenges
    • Revolutionising the identification and prevention of diabetic foot ulcers
    • Precision-guided cancer surgery using sensors and imaging
       
  2. Space and the environment
    • Nature's single use bioreactors: unlocking the power of plants to create rapid response vaccines
    • How space technology combined with real time processing can tackle climate change and air quality
    • Applying sensor IP and knowledge to local weather conditions to enable self-driving cars
    • Improving health and biodiversity by monitoring and tackling the little-known pollutant
    • Insect bioconversion for solving the growing protein shortage: the value of collaboration
    • Agritech: the answer to today’s broken food systems
       
  3. Next generation computing and technology
    • Next generation AI for robotics and industrial control: a spinout journey  
    • The path to plentiful fusion energy with no CO2 emissions
    • Transferring Rawwater's molten metal sealing technology from the oil and gas sector into nuclear industry
    • The world’s best 'spot the difference': safer, faster, better digital imaging for infrastructure inspection
    • Collaborating for impact: Game changing technology finds previously uncoverable fingerprints  
    • Creating a world-leading quantum ion chip  

Get hands-on

Organisations with new technology and science will be showcasing their ideas on exhibition stands throughout the day.  Come and talk to innovators in person.

Hear from the experts

Our experts will be running sessions to cover funding and investment for impact and how to collaborate across both the public and private sector to develop new technologies. People with the right experiences and expertise will inform the debate. There will be contributions by speakers from investment organisations, HM Treasury and technology incubators.

Guaranteed to inspire

The day will be hosted by Oli Barrett who is an expert in making ‘valuable connections between people and ideas’. Simon Devonshire, NPL’s Entrepreneur in Residence, will host the session on collaboration and will draw out the parallels between the ‘stories’ and the global issues facing society in 2020.

This event is organised in partnership with HM Treasury. The Innovation Showcase is free. To register to attend please sign up.
