First HIC in the UK successfully conducted on 15th April 2023!

On 15th April 2023, Leave a Nest United Kingdom Ltd. conducted the first Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference (HIC) in the UK in 2023 and the event was held at IDEALondon, London, UK. At Leave a Nest, we believe through this knowledge platform, we can build a strong relationship between the industry, government and researchers to create new collaborations together in the future. 

In HIC in the UK, we brought the theme of “Research Based Industrial Revolution” for the first HIC in the UK. We received many participants coming from various industries and fields that joined to stimulate the creation of new knowledge and allow the adoption of knowledge to overcome the foreseen challenges. 

The one-day conference featured key activities including Keynote Session, Panel Discussion session, and Special Presentation Session. The keynote speech was conducted by Mr. Dominic Falcao, Founding Director of Deep Science Ventures.
