Big science and medical advances can be prohibitively expensive but it does not have be that way. Affordable diagnostic devices, tiny particle accelerators and simple algorithms to help pilots land safely all aim to reduce costs using imaginative approaches.

Clear Vision on a Budget: Transforming Corneal Care with Affordable Diagnostic Tools

Prof Ahmed Elsheikh (Professor of Biomedical Engineering)
This talk with explore the development of medical devices that combine high precision and unique advanced technologies with extremely low cost and ease of use, and how these might be able to transform corneal care in the future.

Honey I Shrunk the Collider: Making Tiny Particle Accelerators Using Lasers and Gas

Dr Laura Corner (Lecturer)
Particle accelerators are everywhere in science and medicine but the most powerful machines are large and increasingly too expensive to build and run. To continue exploring the frontiers of physics, we need smaller, cheaper colliders. The technology of laser plasma wakefield acceleration can make this possible.

Tau Crash or Not Tau Crash: Nature-Inspired Research to Help Pilots Avoid Bumping into Things

Prof Michael Jump (Academic)
The most hazardous phases of any flight are those close to the ground. It is believed that the natural world has evolved a means to avoid bumping into obstacles through the use of the optical invariant 'time-to-contact' (tau). The University of Liverpool has pioneered the use of tau as a flight control variable. This talk will review the past 20-years of this nature-inspired research effort into pilot display and flight control technologies.
