Business and Innovation Programme

Tuesday 6th June and Wednesday 7th June 2017

Climate change presents a wide range of serious risks for business. At the same time, it also provides an array of opportunities for companies, large and small, to drive forward innovative and successful adaptation products and services.

ECCA 2017 will therefore for the first time include a separate and tailor-made business and innovation programme. This mirrors earlier initiatives such as the COP21 Sustainable Innovation Forum in 2015, or the Climate Innovation Summit 2016, which recognize the increasing importance and need for the business sector in developing and delivering climate ready solutions, as well as the urgency of adapting businesses to a changing climate.

Register for the ECCA Business & Innovation Programme (£150 for both days)

A special delegate rate of £150 is being offered for those attending the Business and Innovation Programme only – on Tuesday 6th June and Wednesday 7th June. To access this rate, please register here.

If you want to attend the full ECCA conference programme (5th – 9th June) – which includes access to the Business & Innovation Programme – please register using the general conference registration here.

On Tuesday 6th June 2017, The ECCA Business Day will provide a unique setting to learn about what it takes to prepare business for a changing climate. At the same time, it will also present a great opportunity for meeting and networking with more than 1,000 expected delegates at the entire ECCA conference, including like-minded professionals, clients, top scientists and renowned practitioners from a variety of fields including urban planners, land managers, local and national government officials, engineers, architects, water and other utility companies, technical consultancies, academic researchers and NGOs.

ECCA 2017 Business Day is sponsored by Prospex – the consultancy specialised in enabling strategic cooperation.
Prospex will design and professionally facilitate all business day sessions as engaging dialogues for impact.

On Wednesday 7th June 2017, The ECCA Innovation Day will create opportunities for business, from micro- to multi-nationals to join with researchers, students and other groups in tackling the adaptation challenges of cities and local governments. Through an open innovation process and via a pitching stage, innovators will highlight how their cutting-edge solutions can tackle current and future adaptation needs.

ECCA 2017 Innovation Day is organised and sponsored by Climate-KIC, Europe’s largest climate innovation agency and Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.
