CGI is proud to be headline sponsor of the first Northumbrian Water Group (part of CKI) Innovation Festival

10-14 July 2017  Newcastle

Northumbrian Water Group Innovation Festival

CGI is delighted to announce that we are sponsoring the first NWG Innovation Festival on 10-14 July. This unique event organised by Northumbrian Water Group aims to create a showcase of innovative thinking and new technology by taking six problem statements and applying design thinking techniques to try to solve them.

CGI will lead one of the six design sprint session, entitled ‘Tomorrow’s World’: What will living and working look like in 2030?, where we’ll imagine what a typical working day might look like at the end of the next decade; we’ll discover how technology will enhance our lives at home and at work and we’ll explore which roles and industries might emerge or be disrupted.

The event, which will have a distinct summer festival atmosphere, will be attended by senior managers from Northumbrian Water and CKI group companies including 3, UK Power Network, Wales and West Utilities and Northern Gas Networks. Northumbrian Water customers, local businesses, students and academics from local universities, as well as groups from different schools in the region have also been invited to participate.

CGI has been delivering technological innovation in the water and utilities sectors for over three decades and we are very excited to be part of this great initiative by our client NWG.
