Opening session“The purpose of the showcase is to highlight the Centre’s current research and accomplishments to our industry partners as well as internal collaborators at Imperial College” Professor Jennifer Whyte explained. “Not only does the event act as a platform for broadening our industry engagement, but also allows us to explore our new connections with other Imperial College research centres”.
