Three shortlisted entrants will pitch their technological solutions to delegates live at the Future Technology Forum event in September
New Civil Engineer, the official magazine of the Institution of Civil Engineers, is calling for innovators and engineers to enter its Tech Zone competition which forms part of this yearís Future Technology Forum.
The two-day event brings together key innovators, technology leaders and industry to explore solutions critical to the design, delivery and maintenance of future structures and infrastructure.
In keeping with this, the magazine is looking for ìsmart solutions that will contribute to driving efficiencies in the design, construction, or management of infrastructure assets.
Three shortlisted entrants will then have the opportunity to pitch their technological solutions to delegates live at the event on September 15. Pitches will last five minutes, followed by questions from the chair and delegates in the audience.
Following the Q&A, delegates will cast their vote on the preferred pitch live at the event. The winning entry will be profiled in New Civil Engineer.
To be in with a chance to pitch your ideas to the industry, please submit a 500-word synopsis detailing your technology, along with five slides that you wish to use in your live pitch.
Entries should: emphasise the technological innovation; focus on potential project time and cost savings; and discuss the development and application of the solution. Please send submissions to [email protected].
Entries should be received no later than Monday 15 August.
