This was a great opportunity for CDT supervisors, members of the industrial consortium and the CDT management and steering teams to meet, mingle and exchange ideas. The academic and industrial partners expressed real interest in contributing to the Sensor CDT and engaging with the programme.  More than 40 members attended the event.

Clemens Kaminski, the CDT director, gave a brief overview of the aims of the Sensor CDT and an update on the organisational progress and student numbers.

Many sensor related projects, research and collaborations were discussed over an excellent dinner in the Allhusen Room with its Leslie MacDonnald ("Max") Gill wind dial from 1926 on one of the walls - an example of an early "remote sensor".
