The highlights video from this summer’s Innovation Festival has now been released.
The new event which took place at Newark Showground was established to ‘make the case for innovation’ and brought together local authorities, central government, the supply chain, associations and academia.
More than 60 different local highway authorities were represented at the event with the DfT, National Highways, Welsh Government and other key bodies in attendance over the two days.
The highlights video showcases a variety of live outdoor demonstrations that took place over the two days, with exhibitors displaying the latest innovations that the sector has to offer.
In addition, it also captures the wide range of exhibitions that were showcased in the Main Hall and the panel debates that took place.
The winners of this year’s Innovation Festival have been revealed by the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) and will now receive funding to develop their innovation or facilitate a trial of their product or solution on a local authority network.
Martin Duffy, Chief Executive of the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG), discusses the importance of 'fast-tracking' innovation following the announcement of the successful Qualifying Innovators from this year's Innovation Festival.
