The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has moved its successful Future of Technology series onto a virtual platform - starting today (Monday).

In partnership with the Institute of Digital Engineering, the APC will be hosting a week-long series of online events on Digitalisation and The Transformation of Engineering.

The series begins on Monday, May 18 at 10.30am, with a webinar that asks if the automotive industry is actually in the slow lane, and continues for the rest of the week.

Each 90-minute live event will showcase a series of speakers followed by a panel discussion on how the automotive industry can make best use of digital engineering.

Speaker highlights include Mark Mathieson from McLaren Racing, Sir Brian Burridge from the Royal Aeronautical Society and Sarah Kenny from Maritime UK as well as representatives from OEMs and the worlds of gaming and AI.

Jo Evans, Head of Strategy, Communications and Marketing at the APC says: ‘We’re really excited to bring our Future of Technology series into the virtual world. In the last few weeks the world has turned on its head, but the juggernaut of technological innovation continues to move at pace.

“By bringing these events to a digital stage we hope to welcome a new audience to the series and broaden the debate even further.”
