About this event

ICE will be exploring the topic of Digital Engineering under the presidency of leading expert Professor Tim Broyd. Following on from the release of the State of the Nation 2017: Digital Transformation, ICE London is delighted to announce our new Knowledge Programme: Making London Smarter.

Making London Smarter, running from September to December 2017 will examine how London can benefit from new and emerging technologies in the infrastructure sector. The series of event bring together leading specialists, industry experts and decision makers to answer questions such as:

  • What are the new technologies that we can expect to see over the coming years?
  • What opportunities and challenges do they pose?
  • How will they affect how we live, work and travel in London?
  • How do we make London a smart city?

Our second lecture in the series will be 'Making London carbon neutral'.

The lecture will explore what a zero carbon London would look like, best practice examples and what does the city needs to do to achieve this.

The Chair of the speakers' panel will be Steve Lee, Associate Director, Turner & Townsend.
