The role of the Infrastructure Innovation Board is to help accelerate new products, services and ideas for the progression of innovation within the highways sector.
The board is made up of several key individuals from across the roads, utilities and energy sectors, with individuals representing a range of different organisations including central government, local authorities, SMEs, trade associations and technology providers.
The board will be mindful of commercial sensitivities and will work with innovators to ensure they are happy with the ‘when and where’ of sharing information.
People who come to the board with ideas can be confident that the control of the material, product or service rests with them. The board’s role will be to try and cut away at the layers of delay that can often stifle innovation with members offering clear and constructive feedback.
The Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) supports the Infrastructure Innovation Board where it requires a more detailed technical assessment of a product, service or material and is made up of a group of technical experts and practitioners.
The TAP is made up of a group of technical experts and practitioners and its role is to provide honest and straightforward feedback to help to help innovators implement their innovations.
The panel provides knowledge and input from the right experts and expert practitioners right across the spectrum of the Highway and Highway Asset world, every corner of every field of expertise.
The group acts as a forum for exchanging and sharing innovative ideas across the southeast and encourages authorities to try new ways of delivering highway services.
Members of LCRIG are also provided with a Member Profile. This service provides each member with the opportunity to share their organisation’s details, job opportunities, news, videos and links to key information. Members are also able to request for LCRIG to facilitate communication between members and the wider highways community.
