Tickets are selling fast for the Association for Consultancy and Engineering's (ACE) hackathon, which takes place in less than one month.

The two-part hackathon series will look at innovation and net zero on July 3, from 10am to 3pm, as part of Net Zero Week.

The event will look at the biggest challenges facing our sector or industry, when it comes to achieving net zero emissions. 

The opportunities for innovation and new business models in delivering net zero will be discussed and explored, as well as the key drivers and barriers to achieving net zero emissions.

Workshops will take place throughout the day, with the event also exploring future skills needed in the infrastructure sector and the new technologies that are emerging. 

Questions will also be asked on how organisations can collaborate to achieve net zero emissions and the key policy and regulatory changes that need to be made to support the transition to net zero.

Net Zero week is the UK’s official national awareness week for the national sustainability agenda. 

The not-for-profit social enterprise offers stakeholders a dedicated platform to voice opinions, share evidence and best practice, explore strategy, and highlight solutions in our shared journey towards a net zero future.

It was launched two years ago by Shawn Coles, who previously spent over 20 years working in climate change marketing and media. 

Infrastructure Intelligence magazine has backed Net Zero Week as a media partner since the early days of the project and since then, more than 40 others have followed suit, including HM Government, Innovate UK, ADBA, Nuclear Industry Association, Carbon Capture & Storage Association, and HS2.
