About the conference

Techshare Europe 2015 returns to the Glasgow Science Centre for the 4th consecutive year on 10-11 September 2015!

Building on the success of previous years the conference has attracted a wide range of international speakers and influential experts. Featuring the latest developments and innovations, the conference will promote discussion and debate and focus on wearable technology, mainstream meets specialist provision and digital access and engagement in our increasingly connected world.

We are delighted to announce that this year, in partnership with the Scottish Institute for Enterprise we will be welcoming teams of student innovators from a number of universities to take part in an innovation and entrepreneurial learning experience. The teams will be presented with a range of challenges facing blind and partially sighted people and tasked with pitching their solutions at the end of the conference.

We are delighted to announce that students will attend from Duncan of Jordanstone, Glasgow Caledonian University, Napier Univesity, Glasgow School of Art, Abertay University and Edinburgh College.
