About the lecture
Earlier in 2013 the Rt Hon David Willetts MP, Minister for Universities and Science, authored a pamphlet in which he identified eight technology areas of particular, wide-ranging, significance, potential economic importance, and in which the UK's research base was particularly strong.
- The big data revolution and energy-efficient computing
- Satellites and commercial applications of space
- Robotics and autonomous systems
- Life sciences, genomics and synthetic biology
- Regenerative medicine
- Advanced materials and nano-technology
- Energy and its storage
Join us on 9 October at this free-to-attend lecture to hear further from the Minister and engage in discussion on these 'eight great technologies - and more'.
With the two-year refurbishment of IET London: Savoy Place now underway, the 2013 Memorial Mountbatten Lecture will be held at the Royal Institution, a London-based independent charity dedicated to connecting people with the world of science.
