TWI has been in discussions with The Immersive Kind, a research and development community dedicated to exploring the intersection between art, technology and science.
The work of The Immersive Kind resonates closely with that of TWI as they explore themes of technologies such as additive manufacturing, digital inclusion and diversity.
They are currently exploring the changing relationship between society and technology in the light of the COVID-19 global health pandemic. This focus also ties in closely with TWI’s work to support our Members and frontline staff during this time.
The Immersive Kind are holding a two-part ‘Med Tech Revolution’ series of events, starting with a ‘Disaster Preparedness Kit’ discussion on 17 June 2020. This first event, looking at the pioneering work and immediate response to COVID-19, will be followed by a second symposium, titled ‘People, Place, Planning,’ which will explore health policies and future proofing.
Uniting leading voices from the medical, technology and design sectors, this series of events will investigate the challenges posed by the pandemic concerning creating a fast response to demands such as the provision of personal protective equipment. These challenges have changed how we work across disciplines and borders, creating new opportunities. The event aims to look at how we can take the successes of this time forward to better inform innovation, infrastructure and policy in medical technology.
The symposium sessions will include talks from leading experts followed by an audience Q&A. You can register for the first symposium by following the link, here.
These events promise to be just the start of a larger creative series including podcasts, talks and an innovation sprint.
