Launched in October 2016, the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Platform (i3P) is an independent innovation community governed by representatives from its member organisations. Membership is open to clients (currently major infrastructure projects and construction programmes) and their supply chains (Tier 1 contractors and consultants) across the infrastructure industry.
As a primary driver for innovation in the UK infrastructure industry, i3P will help transform ideas into opportunities and practical solutions; providing a mechanism for strategically directing innovation to address the major challenges facing the infrastructure industry.
By fostering a truly collaborative culture of innovation across both infrastructure clients and their supply chains, i3P will create a ‘safe space’ to identify areas for potential industry improvement, share ideas, and enable members to partner in projects that drive increased value across the infrastructure industry.
The i3P is managed by an independent secretariat provided by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). KTN works to support the forum, host the innovation portal, and provide full administrative support to i3P, as well as playing a key role in identifying, prioritising and promoting innovation development opportunities.
