See our collaborative response to the Covid-19 pandemic

We’re pleased to announce that we are participating in the Oriel Science Exhibition until September 2022.

The long-anticipated event is back with a brand-new venue in the heart of the Swansea city centre and will open on Saturday the 22nd of May from 10am to 4pm.

Entry to the venue in Castle Street (a minute’s walk from Castle Square) is free and will feature two exhibitions entitled ‘Movement and Motion’ and ‘Swansea University’s Response to Covid-19’.

At the exhibition there will be three projects involved with the Healthcare Technology Centre:

  • Cambria Dental, a project that used UVC disinfection in a dentists practice to reduce the risk of Covid-19 cross-infection after surgeries
  • Coronavent, an innovative ventilator that can be built quickly from local parts and, crucially, used even for patients with severe coronavirus, which is an HTC ATiC collaboration. Read more about this incredible invention
  • Face Visors, a collaboration between Accelerate Healthcare Technology Centre, Swansea University and partners to develop a CE approved face visor

As a result of the pandemic, visiting the event is going to be a bit different in previous years. Visitor and staff safety is our top priority so there are several Covid-19 safety measures throughout the venue.

When you visit, please ensure that you follow the Welsh Government guidelines. These are:

  • wear a face covering
  • sanitise your hands on entry (sanitiser is provided)
  • adhere to social distancing and follow the one-way system.

Spaces will be limited due to social distancing measures. Please book your place in advance and plan your visit ahead.
