The Future Cities Catapult is delivering Cardiff Innovation Week (24 – 27 April 2017), a programme of innovative events and engagement opportunities for the city.
Hosted at Tramshed Tech, this pop-up programme has three aims:

1) to identify and connect with SMEs and entrepreneurs in the city with innovation urban solutions and services who would benefit from joining our SME support programme;

2) to offer our expert perspective and insights as a contribution to existing urban innovation / future cities conversations in the city and region (and to play a convening role in drawing in expertise from other Catapults; and

3) to improve our collective understanding of the city and region as a place – its ambitions, challenges and unique assets that could form the basis of further collaborative efforts to enhance the city as a great place to live, work and play.

As part of Innovation Week – Cardiff, the Future Cities Catapult is hosting a series of networking events for the city’s leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, academics and urgent optimists.
