Highways England Graffiti Competition Information Webinar

DATE: 21 May, 2021

LOCATION: Digital Event

START TIME: 2:00 pm END TIME: 3:00 pm

Join us on Friday the 21st May to hear about a brand new competition being funded by Highways England.

Highways England are seeking to advance promising new products and services that have the potential to both remove and prevent the use of graffiti on the strategic road network. This ambition is being delivered through this innovation funding programme, which is being delivered by the Connected Places Catapult. The programme will award £30k funding to no more than 5 organisations to design a trial of their technology on a road network testbed.

The programme opened for applications on Monday 10th May and the deadline for submitting applications is Thursday 10th June at midnight. For more information about the opportunity, please click here >>>

This information webinar will provide guidance and support to potential applicants on the scope of the programme. You will hear from Kier’s Head of Innovation in addition to senior representatives from Highways England, who will discuss how their organisations will be providing support to our suppliers. There will also be the opportunity to ask any questions you have about the programme.
