Broadband for Surrey Hills - B4SH

Broadband for Surrey Hills or B4SH is bringing hyper fast fibre optic broadband - "the fourth utility" - to the Surrey Hills. B4SH is a local, independent, not-for-profit Community Benefit Society (CBS), established in November 2017, run for and by the community, largely by volunteers.

Broadband for Surrey Hills logo
The service is optical fibre to the premises (FTTP) - no copper wires, no poles, no elderly cabinets, no reliance on yesterday's hardware.

With this entirely fibre network B4SH provides a 1000Mb / 1 Gig up and down broadband connection. This is around 50 times faster than BT's standard broadband and 25 times faster than BT Superfast service. We are installing our fibre optic cable underground so there are no network performance issues associated with cables running overhead on poles.

Our network has started in Silent Pool/Home Farm area of Albury where we have our first customers. Building and running the network is funded by monies raised from investors. Funding comes from the sale of shares. Today's rural business can thrive only if communications are effective, reliable and affordable. B4SH provides tomorrow's network to solve today's network challenges.  Learn more at www.gigupanddown.net/ or email enquiries@b4sh.org.uk

Club Minecraft logo
It is a great place for kids to meet, play with each other, and learn from one another. Club Minecraft offers arguably one of the best Minecraft experience.

Club Minecraft's on-site servers are completely private, and are not accessible outside the local network created for each event. This is important because public servers often have inappropriate language and/or malicious people.

Players are free to build, play, and explore in custom maps no player will ever see online. Featuring unique structures, tasks and mini-games built by the staff, Club Minecraft game servers are constantly evolving.

The Pirbright Institute

The Pirbright Institute is a world leading centre of excellence in research and surveillance of virus diseases of farm animals and viruses that spread from animals to humans.

Did you know that two thirds of human viruses are transmitted from animals to humans, causing diseases like Ebola, Nipah and influenza? These are known as zoonoses. Three quarters of newly emerging viruses, previously unknown to infect humans, are also zoonoses.

As humans continue to encroach on rural environments and global travel becomes cheaper and easier we will increasingly have to contend with viruses previously confined to the tropics or remote areas spreading to more urban and densely populated parts of the world. We may also see new viruses emerging that are capable of causing disease in humans. Recent examples being SARS and MERS.

The Pirbright Institute's interactive exhibit at Innovate Guildford will explore the many factors that contribute to the emergence and spread of zoonoses, including the impact of climate change, and what we are doing to predict, control and prevent them.


The University of Surrey

The University of Surrey is a global community of ideas and people, dedicated to life-changing education and research. We are excited to be at Innovate Guildford 2019, showcasing some of the inspirational things we're achieving at the forefront of research and technology.

Stall 1: Nutrition and Health

Food for Thought
What: Demonstration of the fats and salt found in every day foods and the science behind it, including debunking the myths around misleading advertising regarding fat content etc.


Stall 2: Physics

Title: Nanotechnologies and soft matter
What: Academics and students from the physics department will present ideas and concepts around Nanotechnologies - touch screen technologies, microbeads and solar cells. The stand will include interesting posters - aimed at a public audience. The researchers will be able to explain physics ideas and their research. There will be a range of exciting hands on activities to explain some concepts in nanotechnologies and soft matter. 


Stall 3: Music and Psychology

Title: Tuning In
What: Music-based activity, demonstrating how music combined with technology can lead to large scale improvements in emotional wellbeing. Visitors listening to designated music selections via laptop and headphone will be able to 'Tune In' to what they feel while listening, whilst interacting with a game (which will also be shown on a large screen). There will be a life-size body silhouette with a sticky front and an emotion wheel for visitors to stick their emotions to in response to the music. This activity explores the science of emotions, the body and the brain, but also how music can be used therapeutically across the lifespan.


Stall 4: Fair Space Hub

Title: Fair Space Hub
What: An interactive stand designed to enable visitors to understand what robotics and artificial intelligence can do in space. Visitors will also be able to explore different scenarios for robots - how they could be used on a planet's surface, or whilst circulating in orbit, and even how they can help astronauts living in the Moon Village. There will be Lego for visitors to play with in order to build moon villages or bases and we will be giving away little astronaut, rocket and moon stress toys. There will also be posters for discussion. There may also be a space suit to look at and we will be giving details out about a Space Robot Competition for schools.
