Lecture about why the academy should get closer to the industry

"When, where, how and why the academy should develop a closer relationship with the maritime industry", that's the headline of Bengt Ramnes Inaugural lecture for Professor of the Practice at Chalmers. The lecture will be held on January 21.

With other words, Bengt Ramne will be talking exactly about why Lighthouse should exist, mainly with the perspective of the academy. The lecture will elaborate on how a closer relationship between the academy and the marine industry can be established through common applied development projects. This type of projects has the potential to enhance the competiveness of the marine industry and reduce its environmental impact and at the same time contribute to a broader knowledge-base for students and researchers. The lecture concludes with a discussion regarding which projects that can be started within the near future and the pre requisites for these projects.
The lecture will take place at Lecture hall Trubaduren in house Saga, Chalmers Lindholmen, at 1PM on January 21. If you're interested in attending, please send an e-mail to emma.aberg [at] chalmers.se by January 17. The lecture is free of charge, and coffee and cake will be served.
