Scientific entrepreneurship

The Institute of Physics and the University of Wolverhampton are pleased to host Prof. Simone de Liberato, from the University of Southampton, for an Evening Lecture addressed to the general public.

The talk will start at 19:30 with refreshments served from 19:00. It is free and open to all audiences (no age restriction).

We kindly request registration via event-brite to help us provide enough catering.

Physics is at the forefront of technology, from optics in the middle age and the law of falling bodies in the 17th century to quantum physics in our current time, passing by electromagnetism, thermodynamics, nuclear forces and many other disciplines that each shape an industry of its own. In response to a patent officer, physicist Richard Feynman once replied "there are so many ideas [...] that I'd be here all day telling you stuf". In a world that always move faster, big changes require the scientist to mutate into an entrepreneur. In this Lecture, Prof. de Liberato, leader of the Quantum Theory and Technology Group at the University of Southampton, and a successful scientific entrepreneur who started several companies (Hypios, AdQuantic, ...) will share his insights and experience in bringing smart and new ideas into everybody's life.
