New for the 2017 event is The Intelligent Infrastructure Challenge. This is a competition involving specific infrastructure client challenges set by Highways England, Bristol City Council, Transport for the North, England’s¬†Economic Heartland¬†the London Air Quality Commission¬†and Transport Scotland. These challenges require innovative technical solutions to problems involving customer service and / or network efficiency and / or safety and security and /or performance.

Each shortlisted candidate will be able to exhibit their solution for free and will be asked to give a 5 minute presentation in The Hub. Each of the challenger clients will be tasked to pick a winner from the shortlist and award a prize at a special ceremony during the event on Thursday November 9th. Winners will receive various levels of non-financial support from the challenger client.
