Robotic Arm used in Adaptive and Rehabilitative Technology Research by CDE Research Engineer Mark Moseley.
CDE Research Engineers, Mark Moseley, Asha Blatherwick, Phil Wilkinson and Oliver Gingrich presented some of their research during the Festival of Learning at Bournemouth University 11th – 17th July #BUFest15. The event, titled Ability NOT Disability, brought together Playful, Adaptive and Rehabilitative Technologies which could break down barriers to participation and improve the quality of life for those with conditions that limit their abilities. Members of the public came along to chat to the students and interact with some of the technology on display. Further details will be on the CDE website soon.
Congratulations to Research Engineer Steve Willey, he has received an R&D credit on the new ‘Ant-Man’ movie. Further details will be available on the website soon so keep watch.
CDE had a very successful stand during the Develop:Brighton Conference this year. Keep an eye on the CDE website for a few of the photos.

EPSRC is pleased to announce the opportunity for Research Council policy internships provide an opportunity for Research Council funded PhD students to work for three months in one of a selected group of highly influential policy organisations.
Please note the following opportunity for EPSRC-funded doctoral students to undertake an internship at partner host organisations on a policy topic relevant to both the student and the host. The student will be expected to produce a briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event.
The scheme is being run by NERC on behalf of all the Research Councils and further details are available at http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/skills/policyinternships/. All enquiries and applications must be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hosting partners EPSRC funded students may apply to are (other Research Councils may be incorporating other partners):
The internship scheme significantly contributes to the skills and professional development of Doctoral students. Benefits include the opportunity to network within the policy arena and develop a range of transferable skills and knowledge such as report writing and time management. Hosts also benefit from the additional resource provided by students and help in the production of briefing papers and contribution to the organisation's policy evidence base.
Please note the application deadline is 28th August 2015 and all enquiries and applications must be directed to email@example.com
