Local authorities and other public sector bodies are looking to invest in broadband infrastructure – sometimes with funding from the government through BDUK or the EU, and sometimes using their own resources or in partnership with the private sector.

Key aims are to transform public services and to stimulate demand for fast broadband as a way to build the digital economy. But what are the key transformations that need to occur, and how can broadband projects ensure they come about? How can investment in infrastructure be connected to innovation and take up of new applications and services?

In this seminar CBN and The Open University will demonstrate their tried and tested ‘Imagine-IBZL’ methodology for tackling these difficult issues, showing how multiple stakeholders can be brought into an effective innovation and delivery process and helping participants make the first steps.

A must-attend event for anyone working on BDUK/UBF and other public-sector-led broadband projects.
