Presentations from our international technical colloquium

Impact of research funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation into enhancing the safety of critical infrastructure important to society

Date of event: 3-5 September 2014
This successful international event provided a forum for sharing technical knowledge amongst our research centres, a platform for a selection of our researchers to disseminate information, communicating the quality and impact of your work on society, and a means to engage younger researchers. 

Listed below are the presentations at the event with links to short videos of each presenter and their presentation files. To access the presentations click on the tab 'Resources'.
