The Building Smart Places Challenge

Bringing ideas together

The BSP Challenge is all about using our collective ability to solve problems. Hethel Innovation will be hosting this event at the Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre on 6th November 2019.

This is not about presenting an idea to the group, or about winning a prize. It is all about bringing together different people from business and the public sector to help generate ideas that will help shape the future of our society.

Following the event, Hethel Innovation will bring together these ideas, look for common themes and patterns and set up groups to help work them further. These Innovation Platforms may be the start of anything from a social enterprise project, through to a new product to market.

The idea is that following the challenge, there will be real projects that businesses can get involved in!


There will be two challenges posed to the group

- How might we use smart tech to address challenges with our ageing society?

- How might we integrate clean growth opportunities into our local communities?
