Events for members
Get closer to the talent and expertise from across Imperial College London via our dedicated IBP events.
Our next event: Tech Foresight 2040 - Intentional Creations - June 2020
Technologies are increasingly being scrutinised for their unintended consequences, from the critique of new materials and their potential impact on the natural world to the influence of technologies on our political system. Join us online in June for Tech Foresight 2040 - Intentional Creations. We will explore how innovative technologies and scientific breakthroughs can be reframed for good and ensure intended positive consequences. Ultimately, how can these new innovations create resilient, healthier and sustainable futures for us all?
Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 this event will be taking place digitally. More details to follow in the near future. Please email email@example.com with any queries about this event.
Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our IBP Events Code of Conduct.
Our last event: Digital Transformation in Business - Beyond Doing to Being
Powered by Imperial Business Partners, this event challenged preconceptions in industry about implementing digital tools and cultures. The audience came prepared to think about digital strategies that generate internal efficiencies and provide better external service and product offerings. They were treated to four expert academic talks, an industry panel, and pitches from Imperial's digitally innovative startups.

Tech Foresight 2038: Shifting Realities
Enter 2038; a world of shifting realities.
Enter 2038: a world of shifting realities, where things are not always what they seem to be, and where technological breakthroughs could change the very fundamentals of how we engage with and see the world. On 14 June 2018, TF2038 explored the future from a range of technological enablers, exploring what might be beyond the news-hype.
Systems that learn
Explore data analytics with Imperial and MIT
The 2018 Systems that Learn Conference in London, jointly hosted by the MIT Industrial Liaison Program and Imperial Business Partners, Imperial College, brought together academics, industry leaders and MIT and Imperial College spinoffs to explore how data analytics can improve the way humans organize themselves and how machines can radically improve the way they support humans. Powered by BT.
Bringing the future to life
Anab Jain and Professor David Gann in conversation
Anab Jain and her studio Superflux bring the future to life, creating experiences where people can touch, see and feel the potential of the world we’re creating. Do we want a world where intelligent machines patrol our streets, for instance, or where our genetic heritage determines our health care? Superflux inspires and challenges us to look critically at the decisions and choices we make today. After her 20 min keynote presentation, she discusses what implications this may have for the future with Professor David Gann.
Creating value by quantifying uncertainty
Professor Mark Girolami explores how to harness value in complexity
How might we unlock the power of data through the use of computational statistics? Professor Mark Girolami’s talk at Tech Foresight 2038 explored his vision of how data might impact the way see and practice engineering through the use of computational statistics. He has worked across industries to identify and harness value in often complex, uncertain and data-rich areas. During the talk, we can hear his vision of how cities might go from static objects to responsive beta structures.
Controlling Light at the Nano-scale
Dr Riccardo Sapienza explores how to harness and control light at the nano-scale
What if we could harness and control the power of light? What happens when we can sense light at the nano-scale? At Tech Foresight 2038, Dr Riccardo Sapienza delved into the ways we can control light at the nanoscale by using hyper-uniform disorder material. Trapping light can have many benefits and applications spanning a multitude of industries. We will be taken on a journey of how our interaction with light and lasers might be completely different in 20 years from molecular quantum computing to bio-sensing.
