Hear from our Project Manager Pip Betts at the Waterline Summit 2020

Tune in online 3pm Monday 19 October  

We’re looking forward to exhibiting at this year’s virtual Waterline Summit as part of the University of Hull’s Business Support standspanning five days and five environmental themes from the 1923 October 2020

We’re also thrilled to announce that our Project Manager Pip Betts will be speaking at the event, focusing on the work the Flood Innovation Centre (FIC) is doing to support SMEs in the Humber to reduce flood risk and grow their business by innovating new products, processes and services in flood resilience. 

Showcasing the Humber’s expertise in green innovation, the week-long event will be fully virtual and will focus on how to develop, finance and scale transformational projects upwards from policy through to operations.  

You will also hear from speakers from the Aura Innovation Centre and SparkFund, about the region’s progress in helping to drive forward sustainable carbon-reducing ideas. 

Speaking of the event, Pip Betts said:  

 “We’re delighted to be exhibiting for the first time at what promises to be the most illuminating and rewarding Waterline Summit yet. Rising flood risk due to climate change is one of the country’s most pressing environmental challenges, so having the opportunity to build awareness of the FIC’s work in flood resilience innovation and spread the word to SMEs looking to make a difference in this sector is something we’re incredibly excited about.”
