Sustainable cities conference: Building the future

A conference looking at the businesses and technologies that are cutting carbon and making cities more sustainable will run at the Bath Ventures Innovation Centre on Friday 17 September 2010.

The conference includes speakers from the University’s Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering: Dr Maria-Heleni Nikolopoulou and Professor Peter Walker, Director of the BRE (Building Research Establishment) Centre for Innovative Construction.

Simon Bond, Director of Incubation & Networks, said: "One of the largest markets for sustainable technologies is based around cities: China is building seven sustainable cities; the Middle East has Masdar; and Sweden has showcased Malmo for many years now. The University of Bath has distinct research strengths in this field too and this event will look at some of the commercial opportunities we have in this exciting, global market.”

The conference is organised by Low Carbon South West, a trade association and sector partnership between businesses, academia, investors, local authorities, regional and national agencies promoting the growth of the environmental technologies and services sector in the South West

The event is supported by Greenbang, I-SEE (the Institute for Sustainable Energy & the Environment) and Bath Ventures.
