Prof. Helen Lawton Smith has recently contributed to a roundtable discussion on “How higher education can harness and empower the UK’s research and innovation clusters”, organised by Times Higher Education and Huawei.
This workshop will feature a set of presentations showcasing research use of the HE-BCI dataset, as well as the researchers’ views on what additional features they would find valuable in their own research. This will be followed by a discussion featuring academic researchers, practitioners, and representatives from HESA.
