Solving innovation challenges in the infrastructure sector through chemistry
Posted on 16/01/2019
The UK Government has announced the investment of up £170 million over four years through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Transforming Construction programme to support cross-sector innovation that will help the construction and infrastructure sector improve productivity and optimise the whole life-cycle value of buildings and structures.
UK chemical companies will have a role to play in supplying chemicals and polymers to the infrastructure sector, such as adhesives and sealants, binders, concrete admixtures, insulation products and composite structures to name but a few.
KTN and the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Platform (i3P), supported by the Chemistry Council, are hosting a unique joint event which will bring the UK chemical sector & UK infrastructure supply chain together with clients representing the UK’s largest live infrastructure projects (including HS2, Tideway, Crossrail, etc) to explore opportunities for collaborative innovation.
The “Solving Innovation Challenges in the Infrastructure Sector through Chemistry” event on Wednesday 13th February in London will provide chemical companies with a unique opportunity to hear from clients in the infrastructure sector about the critical innovation challenges they are facing within these large-scale projects. Delegates will be able to build relationships and knowledge with the different parts of the chemicals and infrastructure supply chains, and scope out potential collaborative projects that – through chemistry and chemical products innovation – could address those infrastructure innovation challenges.
For attendees from the infrastructure sector, this will be a valuable opportunity to understand more about the global experiences and capability of the UK chemical sector.
