Webinar: Radical innovation for places – can COVID-19 projects become a Catapult?

12 May 2020

Join Connect Places Catapult on 12th May for their online event.

The COVID-19 emergency has ignited many innovation-driven procurements.

The rule-makers have actively encouraged the use of innovation-focused tools. Can this unconstrained approach to innovation procurement be sustained post-COVID-19? What policies and skills will boost innovation in the post-COVID-19 economy? How can places emerge from this crisis with deeply embedded innovative approaches?

You are invited to discuss your ideas and experiences with their expert panel, which will share the findings of recent global research to frame the debate.
