The Changing face of infrastructure

Wednesday 3 July 2013
10.00 – 17.00, The British Library, London

A free* conference for infrastructure organisations to share, learn and connect

BIG Assist - a programme working to support infrastructure organisations to be more efficient, effective and sustainable - invites you to this exciting one-day conference at the British Library to discuss the issues that matter to infrastructure organisations.

This conference will bring together infrastructure organisations across England, including local, regional, specialist and equalities - as well as funders, statutory bodies, policy makers and researchers – with the aim of providing a forum to engage, share practical skills and resources to help infrastructure organisations adapt and change.

The BIG Assist Summer Conference will offer:

• practical advice and support, with debate and discussion in expert-led workshops
• networking opportunities to share your learning and views

The day will be delivered through presentations, hands-on workshops, case studies and lunchtime sessions, with opportunities to engage and discuss the following topics:

  • Impact: demonstrating the impact and value of infrastructure
  • Marketization: the challenges and dilemmas of selling your services
  • Relationships: forming new links – who and how?
  • Funding and Income: new income and business models
  • Partnerships: collaborations and mergers

Please watch this space for more information on the conference in the coming weeks.
