There is a significant opportunity for eFutures to continue to act as a conduit between industry and academia to help build links and understand common research portfolios. The ESCO report noted that although there is significant industry-university collaboration taking place in electronic systems, there is a strong need for better strategic alignment between academia and industry. eFutures will strive to act as the lynch pin in this and work closely with Innovate UK and NMI. This greater connectivity will result in better knowledge transfer which will benefit the UK electronics commercial sector. It means that they can see experts in fields of direct relevance to their business. These academic experts can help to resolve problems in manufacturing, improve process yield, offer support in terms of failure analysis and characterisation. The academic experts will be able to offer new design strategies such as the use of GALS interconnect in complex SoCs, the integration of bio-sensors in medical electronics, advanced tools for high-level synthesis and reconfigurable computing, etc. It will give smaller companies in particular a better sight of the rapidly changing landscape which they must operate in and adapt to if they are to prosper in the 21st century. The better connectivity will also serve to facilitate the transition of young engineers trained in cutting edge technology and design, into industry.

The eFutures ECR Workshop took place on 31st August - 1st September 2017 at Clare College, Cambridge. This was a free event to all members, fully funded by the EPSRC eFutures Network.
Aims and Objectives of the Workshop
The MEMS conference series has emerged over the last decades as the flagship event for communicating the latest, high-quality results in all fields of microsystems which are geared to promote submissions from industry.
In addition to an exciting scientific program including four high-caliber plenaries, IEEE MEMS is evidently also a great opportunity for networking and community building.

The Knowledge Transfer Network is organising a free AI event on the 7th September in London.
AI, Neural Networks or Machine Learning technologies are being adopted in many circumstances, but usually all the data has to be sent to a server for processing before being acted upon.
The EPSRC Network Teranet, in conjunction with the EPSRC Network eFutures are hosting a meeting on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 July 2017 at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton. The topic will be a series of talks and discussions around the recently published 2017 Roadmap for Terahertz Science and Technology, which Teranet co-ordinated.
The themes for this year’s Annual Community Event were the EPSRC Cross-ICT Priorities: Cross-Disciplinarity and Co-Creation and Future Intelligent Technologies.
Presentations covered the broad landscape of electronics research, from the physical layer through circuit architecture and up to applications and we will cover gaps where new research is needed and discussions took place about how eFutures members can get involved in joint collaborative research.
We had an impressive line-up of speakers (see below) and we have attached the presentations:
Date: Thursday 31st August – Friday 1st September
