Wessex Institutes of Technology Wiki Recap

December 6, 2016

The Wessex Institute of Technology (WIT) is an educational and research institute for a small number of graduate students. Wessex Institute strives to develop “a series of knowledge transfer mechanisms… between academics and professional users within industry.”

Professor Carlos Brebbia established WIT in 1986 to focus on:

  • Research
  • Conferences
  • Publishing

Located at Ashurst Lodge in the New Forest National Park, 100 kilometers from London, WIT was established 900 years ago by King William I. Locals still graze livestock on forest land owned by the British crown.

WIT research programs are funded by industry and research organizations from throughout Europe and North America.

An annual WIT conference program awards the Prigogine Medal, which was established in memory of Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Prize winner in chemistry. Since 2004, the prize has been awarded annually to international recipients by WIT and the University of Siena.
