Let’sGetDigital Day at Flood and Coast 2019

20 June @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Telford International Centre, St Quentin Gate Telford, Shropshire, TF3 4JH

Flood and Coast 2019 is a three day Conference from 18-20 June 2019, run by the Environment Agency in partnership with Digital Gaps.

This year debuts a fresh new venture: LetsGetDigital Day. The 20th June will feature exciting presentations on the use of digital technology in the flood world. There will be two competitions, facilitated by the brand-new conference app, and tempting prizes sponsored by Atkins.

LetsGetDigital is a gauntlet laid down by the Environment Agency (EA) to stimulate the digital innovation in the Flood and Coast industries. Already the EA provides a plethora of open data, LetsGetDigital is about  the creativity and imagination of potential partners in making use of that data. LetsGetDigital will also showcase existing digital stories: one of the competitions will celebrate the ongoing digital journeys of the conference exhibitors. The objective behind LetsGetDigital is two-pronged – to encourage those not currently employing digital to embrace it; and to uncover from those who possess digital skills whether they can add value to the world of Flood and Coast.

The programme will include a Digital Flood-Dragon’s Den type competition where companies will compete with an idea for improving flood resilience using digital technology. 6 winners will get to pitch their idea to 4 Flood-Dragons at a conference session on day 3. The winners will co-develop a prototype with the Environment Agency.
