The MacRobert Award, supported by The Worshipful Company of Engineers, identifies outstanding engineering innovation with proven commercial success and tangible social benefit. As well as the prestige of the award, the winners receive a gold medal and a £50,000 prize.
Edinburgh-based Artemis won the Royal Academy of Engineering's 2015 MacRobert Award for pioneering a new Digital Displacement® power system, with digitally-controlled hydraulics, which has the potential to transform the viability of offshore wind power and low carbon transportation.
Dr Dame Sue Ion will once again chair this interview-style event, which was successfully debuted in London last year. The team behind the innovation will talk about their journey from starting as a spin-out from the University of Edinburgh over 20 years ago to becoming a world leader in hydraulically powered systems. There will be an opportunity for delegates to ask questions and network during the drinks reception.
This event is free of charge. For more information and to register your ticket, please contact the Royal Academy of Engineering Events team.
