Swansea University Security Project Sandpit – Deadline: 2nd April 2019

Security Project Sandpit – a collaboration initiative for local industry and Swansea University academics

We will hold a sandpit day at Computational Foundry on 21st May. Academics from Swansea University will work with participating industry to scope a project that will address industry-led challenges. The day will start with a casual speed networking, followed by people getting into groups to discuss the challenges in detail and plan a research project. Each group must have a Swansea University academic who will be the Principal Investigator of the project. After a long working lunch, the groups will present their project ideas to a panel consisting of a senior academic, an industry representative and someone from a non-technical background. A funding pot of up to £20k will be available and will be awarded to the Principal Investigator of the project.
