St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge, UK, is teaming up with an entrepreneur, researcher and UX strategist Dr Anna Mieczakowski, who will share her UX and design strategy know-how with the audience in the fifth event in a series of workshops. “Let’s face it – design is everywhere, from everything we are wearing, looking at, hearing or holding. That’s why the UX (User Experience) practice is so important during the design of any product, service or experience, because it helps organisations of all types and sizes to truly understand who their customers are by looking deeply into how people think about and act with products and services,” said Dr Anna Mieczakowski. “UX will help you to humanise your technology, differentiate from competition and gain a larger customer following, as people always fall in love with designs that love and appreciate them”.
Conductive graphene inks are currently contributing to advancing many applications, including electronics, sensors, antennae, touch screens, printed heaters, etc. However, making graphene inks that have sufficient conductive properties has been challenging so far due to it requiring the availability of impurity-free graphene with large flake size - something that few manufacturers can do. Another challenge stems from graphene inks requiring to be specially formulated for specific uses. For example, screen printing usually requires optimal coverage capability, while flexographic printing warrants rapid drying. In this presentation, I will present my company's progress regarding development of impurity-free graphene in larger flake sizes, and conductive graphene ink formulation.
Design of new technologies and industries is quite a complex undertaking, requiring focus on a plethora of, often seemingly unrelated, factors. This presentation will discuss commercial examples of designing new technologies that have the potential to transform healthcare, as well as designing the structure, services and a complex manufacturing system of an entirely new nano material industry.
In this presentation, I willuncover the potential new disruptor in the food and grocery industry - the new wonder material Graphene. This talk will cover the implications for retailers and manufacturers and the potential to contribute to reduced food waste generation.
This seminar will look at the challenges and the opportunities in power and spectrum of smart devices. My talk in partiucular will discuss the great potential of graphene, which has an extremely high surface area, in improving energy storage and number of charge cycles.
Customer Discovery is a third fully funded workshop delivered under the EU's MERLIN (Methodologies for Researcher Led Innovations) programme designed to help ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) post-docs and early-stage founders across Europe to realise the full potential and impact of their research and ideas and support them with market validation and commercialisation.
St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge, UK, has partnered with Dr Anna Mieczakowski as a guest speaker to deliver the third event in a series of interactive business workshops aimed at discussing strategies for discovering early on in the design process the motivations, behaviours, values and needs of your current and potential customers.
Stephen Perse Foundation Educational Seminar: What Is Graphene and What Can It Do for Us in the Current Technology Era?
Venue: 23 March 2017 | Cambridge, UK
In just over a decade since its invention, graphene - a new one-atom-thick 2D carbon material - has achieved considerable attention due to its potential to revolutionise the way we think, design and manufacture in a host of areas - from faster and more robust racing cars to lighter aircraft, from rust-free paint to super-thin heaters, from unbreakable mobile phones to breaking-the-mold solutions in medical science. Currently scientists and industrialists alike are working tirelessly to incorporate this novel material into many daily living applications. This presentation will cover what graphene is, how it is produced, why it is a such a promising material, and how all types of organisations are currently trying to make use of it to achieve a step change in their competitiveness.
Graphene is set to revolutionise a wide range of our daily applications, and in doing so it is expected to become to the 21st century, what plastics were to the 20th. I will present my company's cost-effective and green graphene production method that turns waste greenhouse gases, such as methane and carbon dioxide, into ultra-high-quality graphene, in one, very efficient, step. This novel method uses advanced plasma chemistry.
