2nd Energy Harvesting Research Theme Workshop - Structural Monitoring
Date: Wednesday 4th May 2011, 9:30am-4:30pm
Location: TRW Conekt, Solihull, UK
The Network is currently organising the 2nd research theme workshop, concerned with the application of energy harvesting to power the monitoring of structures such as buildings, bridges, tunnels and other fixed infrastructure.
The workshop is designed to help facilitate the definition of a number of new research challenges and to catalyse the creation of multidisciplinary teams to address them. The agenda (see below) includes short presentations to get delegates thinking about the challenges and facilitated workshop sessions will debate the specific technology developments and scientific advances that will be needed to realise the vision of these applications.
The workshop is free to attend but by INVITATION ONLY to ensure a high quality of interaction. If you wish to apply for an invitation or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
