Highways UK is delighted to announce the shortlist for its two annual innovation competitions, running within this year's Highways UK Online, which takes place from 2-6 November, and all from the comfort of your home office or kitchen table.
Unlike previous years, in the Online Highways UK, each competition has a dedicated day covering the category finals and grand final to select the overall winner. Both competition days will also include innovation themed panels and interview contributions.
This two-day innovation festival is supported by Innovate UK and kicks off with Materials Monday, 2 November, dedicated to the finals of the
Civils and Materials Innovation Hub
, sponsored by AECOM. Tech Tuesday on 3 November will see the culmination of the
Intelligent Infrastructure Challenge
, sponsored by Costain.
Across both competitions we received over 140 entries in 2020. That's a 15% increase over last year and a strong indicator of the increasing reputation and impact of both competitions.
During the virtual finals, shortlisted organisations will offer elevator pitches and face quick-fire questions from our judging panel of industry experts. We are allowing just 40 minutes for each category final, so you know it's going to be pacey and massively insightful.
Don't forget, Highways UK is free to attend and recognised for CPD by CIHT.
