The Wessex Institute of Technology is nestled in the heart of the New Forest, a protected area in the U.K. with a unique ecosystem that makes it one of the most important natural areas in Europe. Wikipedia mentions that The Wessex Institute of Technology itself is equally important as it was established in 1986 in a bid to enable the transfer of knowledge within the scientific community, whether rooted in academia or industry.
Over the three decades the Wessex Institute has been in operation it has embarked upon a three pronged approach to delivering the best scientific research available to different communities around the world. The postgraduate educational institution is headed by academics from the U.K., U.S., Canada, and Italy who conduct research, publish their work, and speak at Wessex Institute organized conferences. The Wessex Institute, under the leadership of President Professor Carlos Brebbia, has not satisfied itself with simply conducting the best possible research by its academics; instead, the Institute has looked to create environments where research can be discussed and real world uses created at conferences designed to allow discussion between researchers and industry experts.
Conferences have formed the backbone of the work of the Wessex Institute of Technology, which has become known around the world as a specialist in computational mechanisms. Alongside conferences held around the world to discuss the development of mechanisms for storing information and designing major networks the Wessex Institute has also developed conferences to discuss how real world applications for research can be used. Social problems, such as flooding and disaster management now form a major part of the topics discussed during conferences held across Europe and the rest of world, often at institutions with partnership agreements with the Wessex Institute.
