Our infrastructures, the basic physical and organizational structures and facilities (e.g. buildings, roads, hospitals, railways, power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise, are already vulnerable to today’s extreme weather. Climate changes will increase these vulnerabilities affecting supply, access to resources, operations and patterns of demand.
At this technology showcase, we will look into how we can adapt infrastructure to reduce the impacts of climate change. In doing so we will produce opportunities for infrastructure operators, consultancies, engineers and researchers to work together to develop the skills and capabilities necessary to invest in, design, build and maintain infrastructure for the future. The showcase will enable all parties in the infrastructure sector to exchange ideas of challenges from climate change and the technical solutions that are available, or can be developed, to tackle these challenges.
You are cordially invited to attend this FREE workshop organised by EnTRESS (Environmental Technology & Resource Efficiency Support Services) and BECCI (Built Environment and Climate Change Innovation). There will be presentations from academics and businesses from the Black Country (names to be confirmed) along with opportunities for discussions and networking, and a lunch buffet to finish.
