On Monday 13th May 2019 the i3P workshop considered; How can modern Technical Standards promote and encourage innovation?
Meeting purpose:To bring together responsible technical leaders from I3P client organisations and key stakeholders to:
- Understandwhere respective clients are at with transforming the way they use standards to deliver better outcomes
- Understand the blockersfor innovation in technical standards and outline how and who can remove blockers to accelerate innovation success in our industry
- Work through a case studyaround cementitious material standards and understand how carbon achievements are being prohibited. Consider as an example of how we would achieve a lower carbon impact and develop a novel material that would address a current client infrastructure asset challenge (from the I3P materials development workshop) through a new standard construct that drives a better outcome.
- Develop a list of recommendationsfor I3P that clearly articulate how the technical community will unlock innovation through the better use of standards to drive innovation. (NB How digital standards will support standardisation, increase productivity and reduce carbon. What and how will standards be used in 2029? Provide timeframes of realistic expectations when we should be seeing standards deliver better outcomes to these challenges with a defined impact on industry.)
The full output from the workshop will be published in the near future but here are the presentations:
