NSSN delivered first event in the 'Successfully Adopting Smart Sensing Technologies' series.

The NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) delivered its first session in the 'Successfully Adopting Smart Sensing Technologies' series on Monday 8th of July at the Western Sydney University Launch Pad

"When industry and academia work together, the most cutting-edge technologies give companies a unique advantage," said NSSN's Business Development Manager, Dr Anthony Morfa. 

The event, which was co-hosted by the NSSN and the NSW Department of Industry, was an opportunity for industry to learn about the advantages of working with researchers at universities and the different approaches to utilisation of governmental support.

The event was attended by representatives from the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, the NSW Department of Industry, Western Sydney University (WSU), E-Visuals, L&A Pressure and STEMTera.

“The Successfully Adopting Smart Sensing Technologies event was a great opportunity for industry to learn from industry and about how to engage with universities and research organisations, like those in the NSSN," said Morfa. "Attendees will have left with new strategies to support their businesses."

As part of the NSW Advanced Manufacturing Development Strategy, the NSW Government is partnering with the NSW Smart Sensing Network and the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre to deliver the Successfully Adopting Smart Sensing Technologies series.   

The series is focused on how manufacturing businesses can successfully partner with universities to adopt advanced manufacturing technologies that enhance their competitiveness and resilience.

"The success of the event was made possible by the support of the Department of Industry, specifically Ingrid Marsh and Julie Lockyer, WSU and the Launch Pad program, specifically John Scilly," Morfa said.
