CITB - Innovation Investment Opportunities
CITB recently published research into the impact of digital innovation for construction, which included recommendations on how funding can increase the update and adoption of digital in our industry. This presentation will explore the findings of that research and talk about the funding opportunities CITB is launching as a result.
Delegates will better understand the barriers and opportunities relating to adoption of digital skills, the outcomes we are seeking to achieve through funding, and how you can prepare your own application or get involved in a collaboration that already is.
