The concept of the world as a stage upon which anyone can play their virtual part has long been a vision of Calvium MD, Jo Reid. Whilst aspects of that vision have become a reality, production costs still prevent it becoming ubiquitous. 

In this talk Jo shall reflect upon success and failure for a number of different platforms and consider whether the circular economy might offer an alternative funding model.

Join us on Fri 29th January, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
