BEIS and Innovate UK behind the Innovation Zone at Futurebuild 2019

Posted on: 23/01/2019

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate UK will deliver the Innovation Zone at the Futurebuild event, 5-7 Mar.

Futurebuild 2019, to be held at ExCel in London from 5th-7th March 2019, will focus on tackling the biggest challenges impacting the built environment.  The Innovation Zone is a new addition to the event and is set to inspire and educate delegates around the government’s ambitious clean growth initiatives and provide knowledge to innovative companies on how to access funding and support from BEIS and Innovate UK.

The government recently set out a Clean Growth Grand Challenge, as part of the Industrial Strategy, to put the UK at the forefront of the global low-carbon economy of the future.  The Innovation Zone will demonstrate the government’s work in delivering on the Clean Growth Strategy and will showcase the impact and opportunities of Industrial Strategy Transforming Construction challenge and BEIS’s Energy Innovation Programme.  Focused on accelerating the commercialisation of innovative clean energy technologies and processes, the £505m programme is a major element of the government drive to ensure UK industry is at the leading edge of the global shift to clean growth.

Delegates who visit the zone will be able to meet innovators who are already benefiting from the opportunities created by the Clean Growth Strategy, share thoughts and ideas in the Innovators’ Networking Space, hear from those delivering programmes during the seminar series and find out how to take their innovation to the next level at the ‘Business Bar’.

Futurebuild 2019 is the must-attend event for opinion-shapers, decision makers and product innovators in the built environment sector.  To get your free ticket, click here.
