Further to this, QTLaunchPad has been working with industry representatives and consortia to identify areas where research collaborations would yield great success. Here you can find further details about the development of the project and the consortia. Through our workshops above we have also been developing these topics with new and existing partners - feedback from the workshops can be found here. These identified Research Application & Innovation Scenarios (RIAS) focus on the areas below as we continue to seek collaborative partners for future initiatives - contact info [at] qt21 [dot] eu to find out more.
