Explore the future of human augmentation technology at Ignite+ event 

By Anita Jaynes on 28 October, 2022

The University of Bath is inviting local businesses to its Augmented Human collaboration event on Thursday 1st December.

The purpose of the event is to explore collaborative opportunities between business and academia, specifically looking at technologies that assist and augment the human in multiple ways.

Human augmentation technologies provide a broad sense of opportunities for today and in the future. There are mature technologies that could be integrated today with manageable policy considerations, such as personalised nutrition, wearables and exoskeletons. There are other technologies in the future with promises of bigger potential such as genetic engineering and brain-computer interfaces.

At this event you will be able to engage with academics from the University of Bath to learn about the latest research. You have the option during the registration of the event to provide a short summary of challenges within your company that you would like to explore.

During the day you can:

  • Learn about the Augmented Human Beacon
  • Hear from funders such as Defence and Security Accelerator and Innovate UK
  • Join round table discussions with our academic experts
  • Explore additional funding opportunities with experts

The event is taking place at the Doubletree by Hilton Bath on Walcot Street from 09:30am-12:30pm.
