The first of three new lecture evenings highlighting the research of leading universities will take place at the Royal Academy of Engineering on 16 November. Each of the events will feature the moniker ‘Cutting Edge Research – from the University of…’, with the University of Surrey Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR) the first academic facility to step into the spotlight.
An internationally renowned centre for psychoacoustic engineering research, the IoSR has completed projects in collaboration with BBC R&D, Bang & Olufsen, Genelec, Harman-Becker, Meridian Audio and Sony BPE, among others.
AES UK committee member Will Evans, who is responsible the UK Section’s student activities, commented: “The format will be different from usual. Dr Tim Brookes, the IoSR’s director of research, will give a short introduction to the institute’s work, after which attendees will have an opportunity to meet some of the post-graduate students, view posters of their research projects and discuss their findings. We believe this is an ideal opportunity for those in the audio industry to learn about the research work that is going on and, who knows, any audio equipment manufacturers who come along might find a budding genius for their R&D department!”
‘Cutting Edge Research – from the University of Surrey’ takes place on Tuesday 16 November at the Royal Academy of Engineering, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5DG at 6.30 for 7.00pm. For more details, see the AES UK website: www.aes-uk.org.
