Advanced Engineering webinar: Remanufacturing – 16 July

Published: 30 Jun 2021

Advanced Engineering is a strength across Sussex and the Gatwick Diamond, with a wide range of businesses making a vital contribution to the regional economy. The University of Brighton forges partnerships between researchers and industry, contributing to the regional innovation ecosystem to ensure companies in the region and beyond can operate at the forefront of engineering design and development.

The University of Brighton has teamed up with Gatwick Diamond Business to develop a webinar series that showcases leading developments in industry together with cutting-edge research from the University’s Advanced Engineering Centre (AEC).

The webinars will also include relevant government policy insights, and funding opportunities.

To kick-off the series, a Zoom webinar on Remanufacturing is now open for booking. Remanufacturing – the process of returning a used product to at least its original performance with a warranty that is equivalent to or better than that of the newly manufactured product – offers companies product-level efficiency gains in material and energy use, reduces emissions and waste generation and can address uncertainties and disruptions in global supply chains.

The webinar on Friday 16 July from 11-12:30 will feature:

  • Remanufacturing Policy and Funding

Speaker Ben Peace, Head of Manufacturing at the KTN

  • Research and innovation in Remanufacturing

Speaker Dr Yan Wang, Principal Lecturer and member of the Advanced Engineering Centre at the University of Brighton

  • Implementation of remanufacturing in rail applications and beyond

Speaker Ian Briggs, Director of Aspire Engineering

  • The potential of remanufacturing in Medtech and beyond

Speaker Cormac O’Prey, Principal & Director at Kestrel Consultancy Group

  • The role of universities and business networks in your innovation journey

Speaker Dr Shona Campbell, Associate Director (Enterprise) at the University of Brighton
