Rail Industry Association – Unlocking Innovation Scheme Workshop, Cardiff
November 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The significant opportunities for innovation in Wales with the Cardiff Metro and the Wales and Borders franchise, means this is a perfect time for us to hold our next UIS event in Cardiff. The event will be held on 15 November 2017 in Cardiff city centre.
We once again have a great line up providing insight and opportunities for you right across the sector. Presentations will includeTransport for Wales outlining the opportunities with the Cardiff Metro, Arriva Train Wales, RSSB detailing a new funding competition focused on operational performance, a start-up’s experience of a range of funding mechanisms as well as how to improve your collaboration skills. There will be plenty of networking time to help you move your innovations forward and get them in to the market more quickly.
Since we started the scheme in 2012 over 3,000 people from more than 800 organisations have benefited from UIS. A great example of the power of UIS will be on show at the Cardiff event. RDG will be demonstrating a new lightweight universal wheel chair access ramp, developed within six months of RDG setting out the challenge to the UIS audience in November 2016.
We have a number of elevator pitches available for the day to give you the opportunity to broadcast a challenge you have or an innovation that you need help in developing. We also have the Demo Zone to enable you to promote your latest innovation and ensure that you get the greatest benefit from the day. If you want to put your name forward for either or both of these, please tick the relevant box when registering.
We look forward to seeing you in November!
