We’ve invited three distinguished panellists along to discuss this important question with you over breakfast at UTS on the 7th of December from 08:00-09:00. The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Samuel C. MacAulay and address three related topics:
- Prof. Andrew Davies will talk about how digitisation is changing the way innovation is managed by infrastructure clients, such as Crossrail and Heathrow Airport.
- Prof. Fredrik Tell will then drop down a level by drawing on his research into the aerospace and automotive industries to explain how digitisation is changing the innovation process.
- Sandeep Mathur will then draw on his experience at Transport for New South Wales to trace how digitisation is unlocking opportunities for innovation that reshape the user-experience.
There will be a tour of the UTS Data Visualisation Lab from 09:00-09:30 for those interested. Register to secure your place here.
