The Digital Transport Speed Networking session will open doors to larger brands that are looking to the digital community to implement agile innovation.
From autonomous vehicles to open data, digital technology is revolutionising the way transport systems operate.
The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is hosting an exclusive event that will bring together industry leaders and high-growth potential entrepreneurs offering innovative digital solutions that use data to transform the transport industry.
The Digital Transport Speed Networking session will open doors to larger brands that are looking to the digital community to implement agile innovation. The session will showcase companies developing disruptive data capture technologies, innovative data-driven applications, artificial intelligence algorithms, cyber-security solutions and open-source payment systems.
The event will take place from 14:00-17:00 on Thursday 8th December at the Digital Engineering Test Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. Up to 16 of the most innovative companies to apply to attend will be invited to meet with established industry brands – including Transport for London, Rolls-Royce, and Nissan – for an afternoon of facilitated networking.
The event format has been designed to connect entrepreneurs with potential clients and collaborators through a series of rapid ‘speed dating’ style sessions, which may lead on to successful commercial relationships. Digital innovator attendees will rotate around the room with five minutes within which to have a one-to-one conversation or pitch to each industry representative.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for SMEs developing cutting-edge solutions to secure an audience with potential corporate partners and investors,” said Astrid Ayel, KTN’s Knowledge Transfer Manager for the Digital Economy and organiser of the event.
