  • Unlikely Combinations

    by Illugi Eysteinsson, Adam Stark, Ali Campbell and Alan Stuart

    Unexpected partnerships can bring real benefits

    This session highlights a wide range of activities and opportunities that exist to support business within a modern university, from world leading research, business development and consultancy to collaborative working, student internships and community partnerships.

    Interdisciplinary collaborations - which occur both within and between business and education - bring together different perspectives and approaches to a problem, allowing more innovative and creative solutions to be found, for example by bringing together practitioners from different backgrounds or professions to work in partnership to enhance services to the public, product development or other forms of enterprise.

    To enhance your understanding of the opportunities and benefits that engaging with universities can offer you and your business; this is a session you cannot afford to miss.

    Ali Campbell & Adam Stark, Living map - Visions on Mile End Road
    Living Map is a collaborative project involving Drama students and Media and Arts Technology Postgraduates from Queen Mary, University of London and community groups of all ages, using live performance and digital technology to transform public awareness of Mile End Road as a site where many people meet, interact and dream. The results will be part-performed, part-displayed as interactive projections and part-audible as a sound installation, with speakers installed in grills along the side of Queen Mary college along the Mile End Road.

    Living Map uses techniques developed by a QM Drama Academic, Ali Campbell who has previously used these techniques with great success in settings as diverse as Rio de Janeiro, Lewes and Beckton.

    London Metropolitan University's WOW agency is engaging students and graduates with business, start-ups, SME's and Social Enterprise. See how these bright new minds can provide innovation, breakthrough thinking, expertise and low-cost or free solutions.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Tuesday 22nd May
