From the recent G7 meeting in Cornwall to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow later this year, the need to reduce GHG emissions and slow down global warming has never been higher on the world’s political agenda. But delivering on those climate change commitments is going to depend on business, academia and the government working closely together. Businesses and academia need a framework that supports investment and government need entrepreneurs who can turn ambition into action. This is particularly important in relation to the UK Government’s Ten Point Plan, which will only be achieved by unlocking the power of the academia and business to work with the policy makers and deliver on the stated objectives.
This workshop will report on the work of Centre for Factories of the Future’s (C4FF) and several leading national and international research centres in shipping, automotive and experts in Business-Academia-Government Collaboration and focuses on unleashing the power of Business, Academia and Policy Makers to collaborate effectively and efficiently. The workshop will present the up-to-date work on PoliUniBus project which will cover collaboration methodology, Challenge-led collaboration Framework, Grading Framework and Cloud based PoliUniBus Platform. The workshop is expected to lead to the verification of Challenge-led collaboration Framework and discussion on Grading Framework. The platform will be used in initiating and implementing several projects.
