As a part of techUK's work on smart infrastructure we have been working with the infrastructure industry (through Project 13), looking at opportunities for convergance and the realistion of value accross the sector through digital transformation.
Project 13 is an industry-led initiative aimed at improving productivity in construction projects and infrastructure operation by focusing on the asset owner, those who deliver and operate UK infrastructure. Led by the Infrastructure Client Group, a high-profile panel established in 2014 by HM Treasury under the Institution of Civil Engineers' guidance with members including HS2, Anglian Water, Environment Agency, Highways England, Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and Heathrow.
The project has a number of anticipated outputs including the creation of an Industry Readiness Level and a Technology Framework. The Technology Framework is aimed at both the technology and infrastructure industry, and seeks to create a better understanding of different technology and opportunities for their use across infrastructure.
On 12th December at the Institution of Civil Engineers in Westminster we are running a cross-industry breakfast event to bring technology and infrastructure closer together. The event is open to both infrastructure and technology industries and will be used to consult on the proposed Technology Framework.
Join us to:
- Hear the latest on Project13 and the digital transformation of infrastructure
- Share your views on what would encourage and enable wider use of new technologies in infrastructure
- Help shape a system to showcase your technologies to infrastructure owners
