Discussion will be opened by two internationally prominent academics who have dramatically different perspectives on the question.

Professor Gillian Crampton-Smith founded the influential postgraduate programme in Computer-Related Design at the Royal College of Art, and was founding director of the Institute for Interaction Design in Ivrea, Italy.

Professor Mike Gregory is director of the Cambridge-MIT Institute, and professor of manufacturing engineering in Cambridge.

The discussion will consider questions of the proper relationship between the academy and industry, the role of media in transforming that relationship, and the relevance of cross-disciplinary research to technology.
