This first Wearable Technologies Special Interest Group will focus on identifying opportunities for SMEs to apply university expertise to help develop solutions for real-world challenges in the design, application and uptake of wearable technologies.

The event will showcase to SMEs the innovative world-leading expertise of The Open University’s Wearable Technology group.

The group is a cross disciplinary collaboration of computer, biomedical and social scientists specialising in the development of novel solutions to challenges faced by organisations working in the field of wearable technologies.

There will be the opportunities for delegates to discuss the challenges their organisations face in this field and to identify opportunities where working with the Wearable Technology group would benefit their organisation.
