Innovation in Training: Simulation & Interactivity
A UKIF partnering event supported by CDE
14 November | Inition 3D Studios, London
Registration open here
This event – hosted at Inition’s 3D studios in London’s Tech City and supported by the Centre for Defence Enterprise - seeks to bring together academia and industry to understand the current needs and challenges of users of interactive technologies for training, and to showcase novel technologies and research that might be applied to address them. The event aims to stimulate cross-sector discussions and develop collaborative partnerships. There is time during the day for networking and for speakers to demonstrate their work. Delegates can pre-book meetings with one another in the afternoon.
