1Spatial Confirmed as Sponsor for Northumbrian Water's Innovation Festival
1Spatial, the global geospatial software and solutions company, is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring Northumbrian Water's Innovation Festival later this month.
Back for a fourth year of sprints, hacks, daily dashes, lightening talks and more, this year’s digital Innovation Festival is set to be bigger and better and we’re excited to be part of the line-up. The event is going global this year and hopes to connect thousands of people to collaborate and tackle complex societal and environmental issues.
The week-long festival is free and open to Northumbrian Water employees, partners, members of their supply chain and welcomes young people to take part to help make a difference – this year’s theme is Build Back Better.
Jessica Hampton, Head of Utilities, 1Spatial commented: “We are delighted to take part in the Innovation Festival for a fourth year running and are excited about all of the possibilities an online event can bring. We’re really looking forward to networking, innovating and learning about ways in which we can come together and work as one team to make the world more sustainable, safer and smarter for the future.”
Northumbrian Water’s Head of Innovation Angela MacOscar said: “It’s great to have 1Spatial back with us for Innovation Festival 20. Their ‘Daily Dash’ will focus on helping water companies improve environmental performance which is of huge importance in the current climate. We’re really excited to see what the team come up with and what difference they can make.”
We will be hosting a Daily Dash on Wednesday 16th September where we will explore how to encourage valid reporting of environmental 'events', prioritise these effectively and assess the impact on both your own and neighbouring networks. We will also explore the most effective ways to collaborate with other network operators to share these impact assessments and possibly co-ordinate the response effort.
