Introducing the London Innovation Gateway
16 Oct 2019
The London Innovation Gateway is a digital technology and skills centre that will be launched in Havering in Q4 2019. Urban Foresight's Graham Thrower will present an overview of the Gateway's offer, how it was designed and what benefit construction companies will gain from engaging with it. The Gateway is overseen by the London Borough of Havering Council, Havering College and SEGRO. It will be a multi-site organisation, offering access to large scale immersive technology facilities and smaller scale VR/AR equipment as well as business support services and events. The design of the Gateway's offering has been an end-user led exploratory process that directly engaged with a host of local, construction-related businesses that were experiencing challenges in innovating and in the digitalisation of business processes. The benefits of an accessible service for the quick introduction of immersive technologies was identified as being of potentially significant benefit for these businesses. The London Innovation Gateway will be the place were business can find this.
