Event description

Description

What types of cities will provide the most opportunities for U.K. innovation businesses in the years to come? Will they be mega cities or mid-sized? Will they have emerging or established markets? Will they be clustered in specific countries or spread across the globe? These are the questions and topics Future Cities Catapult will work through in our interactive session – City Typologies and Future Opportunities.

Future Cities Catapult, on behalf of Innovate UK, is running a City Typology exercise to identify opportunities in new and existing international city markets for U.K. businesses.

The exercise will aid the development of support mechanisms to help businesses access international Advanced Urban Service (AUS) markets to Innovate U.K.’s priority countries.

U.K. businesses are invited to join Future Cities Catapult and Innovate UK for a morning session to discuss the (currently ongoing) work on city typologies classification and Research & Innovation funding and support mechanisms.

The insights collected during the workshop will help Innovate UK to better understand the needs of businesses and the challenges they face when working internationally, and support development of support mechanisms to assist them in the process of collaborating overseas.
