Over the past 12 months, National Highways has invested in two innovation accelerator programmes: Accelerating Low Carbon Innovation and the Innovating to Improve Customer Experiences of Roadworks.

The programmes were designed to find the latest solutions to help solve the sector’s pressing challenges. This event will be an opportunity to hear from the seven recent innovation trials which took place across the two programmes.

You will learn about National Highways’ commitment to programmes which are a central tool for accelerating innovations to market. We will be showcasing and celebrating the projects delivered by the cohorts, thanks to the support provided.

Come and network with the cohorts, programme partners, investors and other key players in the highways sector. It is a great chance to hear about how by collaborating across the industry -we can test, validate and accelerate these solutions to market successfully.

What to expect:

• Connect with industry leaders and build momentum in our collective next steps in creating a cleaner, safer and more resilient road network.

• Meet the innovative people that are improving the road network, by either improving the customer experience of roadworks or by changing how roads are built and maintained to meet our zero carbon goals.
