The Wessex Institute of Technology’s primary goal was to develop mechanisms that could transfer knowledge and exchange information between the world of academics and the world of industry. Situated in the New Forest National Park in the southern region of England this Institute was established in 1986 by a professor named Carlos Brebbia. The Institute has grown to where it offers information through three select areas. These areas include funded programs for research, sponsored conferences, and published journals.
The conferences held by the Wessex Institute annually award one chosen researcher with the Prigogine Medal, which is given for work that makes use of Prigogine thermodynamics. In addition to this prestigious award, the Institute also awarded their first George Green Medal in 2014. This medal was awarded for the work done on boundary elements. Wessex Institute regularly holds about 25 conferences each year in addition to the journals produced under the facility’s WIT press.
