NI Days focuses on latest technologies and future of engineering

Published:  12 January, 2017

NIDays welcomed over 600 delegates from across Northern Europe, from a wide range of industries and professions. The event dedicated to technological innovation and discovery in science began with the keynote ‘Impacting Today’s Business’ hosted by Neil Crossan, RF and core test technical marketing engineer for Northern Europe.

The conference also heard from Colin Freeman of Frazer Nash consultancy about the Train Zero model that had won an award the previous evening at the prestigious Engineering Impact Awards.

Richard Roberts, academic technical marketing engineer for Northern Europe commented: ‘‘NIDays is an opportunity to unleash game-changing technologies to the engineering and scientific communities, but the day wouldn’t mean anything without the technical professionals who attend. There was an incredible atmosphere throughout the day and we are thrilled to be connecting great minds from industry and academia under one roof... that’s how true innovation begins.”

Keynote speaker Richard Roberts also emphasised how the Internet of Things is profoundly impacting product design, manufacturing, education and infrastructure and how technology must evolve to realise the true potential of the IoT. With the future technology of Time Sensitive Networking being discussed, future engineers and the Software Tech Preview, the afternoon was filled with a comprehensive outlook into upcoming trends in engineering, science and beyond.
