Brite Innovation Review Spring 2022

  May 2022  
 

Let’s start with some exciting news: We want you to be part of shaping the future of engineering and technology! The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), in partnership with the IKE Institute, is setting out to shake up innovation in engineering and technology to ensure what we do is what you want. Join us by taking our Innovation Landscape Survey and help us understand your innovation needs now and in the future. You can have your say here.

 
 

In this issue, IKE Institute CEO Professor Sa’ad Sam Medhat explores the applications of geofencing in protecting people, organisations and critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected world.

We also speak to the CEO of the Science-Based Targets initiative, Dr Luiz Fernando do Amaral, about how a third of the global economy is now tied to science-based climate targets. Elsewhere, we find out why the implementation of ethical AI is lagging despite boardrooms taking notice of its importance, ask why investment in technology startups is going strong despite the challenges facing the market, and investigate whether Dubai’s bid to place itself as a global cryptocurrency hub will pay off.

 
 

Plus, we hear from City of Glasgow College about one of its most successful innovation projects, take a look at the growing commercial potential of floating offshore wind and its role in the energy transition, and much more.
