The DIZ is aiming to become a beacon area for the application of innovative technology and digital approaches.

Join Connected Places Catapult and Essex + Herts Digital Innovation Zone (DIZ) for a free networking lunch followed by a vibrant discussion of how disruptive change can be driven and key challenges such as climate change tackled through collaborative innovation and cluster activities.

As well as a fantastic opportunity to make introductions to other local SMEs and larger organisations, many with digital or sustainability needs and challenges, there will be two informative panel discussion sessions exploring ’How Hubs of Innovation can Catalyse Change’ and ‘Digital Innovation and the Environment’ and then a final session where a selection of local SMEs will be invited to pitch their creative and innovative businesses, products and models to the wider audience.

The intention is to build on this event to start to develop a DIZ-wide eco-system of digital innovation and attending the event will be the first step in getting involved in this exciting initiative.

Join us to:

– Become a part of the vibrant community of innovators

– Explore opportunities to work with DIZ resident businesses

– Learn how to drive disruptive change through collaborative innovation and cluster activities

The DIZ was created jointly by organisations from business, health, education, local authorities and the voluntary and community sector. It is the most joined up, comprehensive and inclusive partnership of its kind in the UK. Together, we are working to make it the best connected place of its type in the UK.
