The keynote speaker for research open day is:
Queen Mary University of London
Brian will share his experience in a talk entitled: “Selling our research ideas”.
In this talk he will examine the role of engineering research and comment on the extent to which we are meeting the needs of today’s world. In his provocative talk he is critical of the lack of relevance of many research projects and emphasises the need to sell our ideas to our rapidly changing market place. He calls for much closer working relationships between universities and industry, and reviews ways in which we can communicate more effectively.
Brian Collins graduated from University College London in 1962 and spent many years designing antennas for a wide variety of applications for major international civil and military users. He currently works with Antenova Ltd on small antennas for consumer devices and operates his own consultancy company which is involved in a variety of projects in North America, Europe and Asia. He formed and currently chairs the Antenna Interface Standards Group and is well known as an author and conference speaker.
