Mini symposium with Florian von Wrochem, Sony

We had the pleasure to host Dr Florian von Wrochem from Sony’s Materials Laboratories (Stuttgart, Germany).  It was a great opportunity to put together an exciting symposium, with former FRG member Dr James Thomas (funded by the BCFN, and now a post-doc in Oxford) as well as Liam speaking.

New £300m Temple Quarter Campus development consultation launched

The University of Bristol launched the consultation phase of the proposed new £300m development close to Temple Meads train station – the new Temple Quarter Campus.

The development will transform the derelict post office sorting building and part of Arena Island into an open campus that will be part of the community, help to regenerate the area and benefit the whole city.

The UoB is working with communities, businesses and the council to shape future plans, which include landmark buildings for teaching, learning and collaboration, with a focus on future digital technologies. Part of the development includes a new student village and expanding the UoB’s successful enterprise hub, Engine Shed.

Consultation runs from 19 June 2017 until 21 July 2017.
