Discover the Future Futurology Day, Pera Technology - 13 March 2013


Contract product development house, Pera Technology is holding ‘Futurology Day’ on 13th March at its head office in Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. Futurology Day will be a day dedicated to the discovery of emerging technologies and looking at how these technologies will be applied in different industry sectors.

The keynote speaker will be senior TED fellow and sustainability innovator, Dr Rachel Armstrong, who will be talking about ‘Creating Carbon Negative Architecture’; which entails using simple super cells to grow around and into buildings, to create an organic shell that becomes part of the building.

As well as looking at exciting recent discoveries, during the day the speakers will explore emerging technologies and look at the future in specific industry sectors. Attendees will gain an appreciation of how new technologies will be applied in their sector and how they will drive product and process innovations. Sectors covered will be consumer goods, clean-tech, construction, energy, food and drink, healthcare, industrial products and processes, speciality chemicals, transport and water.

Delegates will be able to take a tour of Pera Technology’s laboratories to see a range of exciting innovation projects. Most usefully, attendees are invited to get help with their technical problems, by bringing their technical challenges for review at a 45 minute one-to-one session with a Pera Technology expert.

This event is invitation only and free to attend. Invitations will be extended to businesses that believe they could benefit by exploring new technologies relevant to their sector.
