Join the UK's fastest growing ESP Community

The ESP Community spans the technologies underpinning devices, tools and technologies that are taken for granted today—and that will be taken for granted tomorrow.

The ESP Community is committed to connecting people who don't usually meet because that's where the magic happens. Whether this means farmers talking to sensors specialists about sustainable agriculture; or materials scientists talking to laser scientists about 3D printing—we exist to put innovation into practical use.
