TRANSFORM Policy Workshop Announced

Title: Policy Workshop: Cities as customers for Innovation – The Role of City Procurers and Innovation Agencies

Date: Tuesday 29th September 2015

Venue: Hosted at the Future Cities Catapult – London, UK

Event Objective:

The TRANSFORM Programme, supported by the European Commission, aims to mobilise the procurement power of city authorities to make more rapid progress towards the ultimate goal of sustainable zero carbon transport systems in cities.

The final Programme workshop sets out the lessons from TRANSFORM and identifies the key policies and frameworks for future activity. The day will focus on how city authorities and innovation agencies can work together to create the conditions where innovation procurement for sustainable transport will flourish. Key to this is setting out the challenges for business to respond, transforming existing solutions through maximising the use of innovative solutions.
