Competition: Innovation Gateway

Inmarsat, London | 15 - 16 May 2019

COMPETITION: Innovation Gateway 

Are you a start-up or SME with a great tech solution for airports and looking for a platform to present your idea? Then we have the competition for you!

This year the New Civil Engineer are launching Innovation Gateway where we are looking for SMEs and Start-ups who have bold ideas on how to drive productivity and efficiency of airports to enable more passenger to use their facilities. 

A surge in passenger numbers at airports has created a huge demand for increased capacity in airports and large development plans up and down the UK to meet demand. Airports are facing obstacles over space constraints, pre-empting future trends and technology and maintaining a fully functioning airport while improving and expanding. 

New Civil Engineer have brought together a panel of industry experts to hear your solutions. 

Judges will look for innovations that:

  • Use technologies that can safely be implemented in the airports sector to improve productivity 
  • Have considered how the idea will be introduced in a live working environment causing minimum disruption 
  • Are ready to be trialled in a live environment 
  • Can be introduced and make a noticeable improvement to airport’s capacity in 5 years 

These innovations could help:

  • Drive efficiency of airport ops 
  • Deliver projects in a more cost and time efficient manner 
  • Reduce carbon emissions in any stage of the airport experience 
  • Improve passenger experience 

Judges will be looking for innovations that are at early stage and are seeking a test bed to further prove the concept in a live environment.
