NERC RCUK Water Showcase 2015 Event
The National Environment Research Council’s RCUK Water Showcase, 'Water in Future Cities', will take place at The Crystal, London on the 30th of June 2015. The event will bring together policymakers, businesses and researchers to explore five distinctive visions for these cities of the future: Green Food & Garden Cityscapes, Flood-proof Cities, Smart Homes & City Networks, Cities & the Underworld and Community Transition Cities.
Baca Director, Robert Barker, will be running a workshop on Flood-proof cities with Dr. Jim Wharfe, one of the parallel workshops on Business of Water in Cities that will explore possible routes to realise these visions by:
- Discovering the latest knowledge on infrastructure planning and business models.
- Finding out about finance and funding available for innovation.
- Selecting innovative water services or products for national competition.
- Exploring water interdependencies.
The Research Councils UK -sponsored event will facilitate dialogue and collaborations between researchers and research users in industry, government and third sector.
