Engineering Collaboration for Success:
Best practice for knowledge exchange in agricultural engineering
Collaboration! In the United Kingdom there are superb examples of industry and university collaborations which lead to ground breaking technologies and revolutionary new practices. As Agricultural Engineering, already recognised as a key discipline enabling agriculture to deliver food security, grows and evolves to become even more critical to the modern industrial strategy, the need for better knowledge exchange has never been more important. How can collaboration in engineering work? What does success look like? What can go wrong and how can we avoid the pitfalls?
This conference will explore successful collaborations in engineering between commercial, industrial, research and academic partners. Senior engineers with experience of successful knowledge exchange will share their expertise. Those businesses implementing new technologies will identify the barriers which need to be overcome if industry and research knowledge transfer can be translated into new practices and truly impact on the end user.
This conference is for everyone interested in bringing new technologies and innovative know-how into the agricultural supply chain, including engineers, scientists and technologists, farmers, growers, producers, and policy makers.
