The DIATOMIC accelerator has been supporting innovative SMEs in the West Midlands to respond to a series of challenges identified in collaboration with Birmingham City Council.

This event will be a chance to hear from the nine SMEs who have been testing their solutions on the programme. We will be showcasing the projects and celebrating their achievements. Attendees will have the opportunity to find out more about solutions that could help to create cleaner and healthier cities and a better experience for citizens. There will also be the chance to network with the cohort, programme partners, investors and other key players from local authorities, housing associations and the private sector.
