About this event

Go to event website icon_popup

People with disabilities are an important and valuable section of our community and represent almost one in four of the population. Increasingly, as the population grows older, we can expect a higher percentage of people to live with a disability. This Prestige Event highlights three major areas with emphasis on continued and future requirements for science and engineering resources to help people with disabilities to achieve much-desired independence in some aspect of their lives.

Papers will include discussion on:
  • Prosthetics
  • Vision
  • Digital Health
This evening seminar is the sixteenth annual prestige seminar organised by EEESTA (East of  England Engineering, Science and Technology Association) as a joint event with various professional science and engineering institutions: this year the Institute of Mechanical Engineers is the Principal Partner.

This free event is hosted by the University of Hertfordshire and will commence with refreshments and networking in an informal environment.

An essential element of the prestige seminar is the final chaired discussion when the audience can put forward their views and questions to the speakers and debate some of the issues discussed.
