Northumbrian Water notches up 'global first' with Newcastle innovation festival

Northumbrian Water has hailed a week-long innovation event which it hopes will help it find answers to some of the challenges facing its industry and wider society.

The company has held its first innovation festival at Newcastle Racecourse this week, teaming up with customers, young people from the region and global companies including IBM, Microsoft and BT to explore a number of issues facing the region.

The event came to a conclusion this afternoon with participants sharing their ideas on flood reduction, improving the environment, building the cities of the future and the development of the workplace of 2030.

And Northumbrian Water’s CEO Heidi Mottram said that the event had been a ‘global first’.
