Contact Chris if you’re already working in the energy, infrastructure and water sectors and want links to innovative technologies; maybe from a different sector and especially from a Net Zero perspective.  Also, organisations who have little or no knowledge of these sectors and want to understand the key drivers, programmes and opportunities to apply their innovative technologies.

Chris works with industry and academia to help drive innovation across the energy, infrastructure & water sectors.  Many of these organisations work in other sectors and Chris can provide links to information, end users and other key players and networks across these sectors and beyond.

As well as working with colleagues on the KTN innovation exchange (KTN-iX) programme, Chris supports delivery of the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Partnership (i3P); the Faraday Challenge; Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund: Prospering from the Energy Revolution; Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund: Transforming Construction.
