MISCADA Industry Talk Series

The MISCADA Industry Talk Series hosts a couple of talks by industry partners. Partners typically introduce their company; and present research and development challenges they currently face; or present successful research projects (in collaboration with MISCADA); and pitch some project ideas for a dissertation over the summer, which then are co-supervised with a Durham academic.

The event is hosted as MISCADA Industry Talk under the umbrella of the seminar series of Durham’s Institute for Data Science.
