HiPEDS has an industrially-focused ethos that embeds the support of industry throughout its activities. One such group is the Advisory Board, which acts as an important mechanism in enabling innovation by building on the strong relationships between HiPEDS, industrial parners and students in an advisory capacity.
The Advisory Board serves to:
- Share industrialists views and interests with the Centre
- Advise and support HiPEDS in enhancing the provision for the doctoral and post-doc community
- Champion the vision of HiPEDS and promote external visibility
Chair: Philip Leong
Philip is currently Professor of Computer Systems in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney, Visiting Professor at Imperial College and the Chief Technology Advisor to Cluster Technology.
The Advisory Board is comprised of industrial partners, some of whom have graduated from the HiPEDS programme. They meet annually to provide support and advice on the various HiPEDS activities and initiatives.
