FIDO AI is the first of four challenges teams of apprentices will take on as part of the Institute of Water’s Skills Challenge.

There’ll be pitfalls along the way.

Innovation Stage

FIDO CEO Victoria Edwards will give her unique perspective as the founder of a new technology business in the UK water sector as part of a session chaired by Dr Jo Burgess, Head of Trial Reservoir for Isle Utilities.

The session brings together vendors and technology users who have successfully found a way to engage in a trial-to-purchase process. Look out for short first-hand accounts of how they managed to reach agreements, what happened during their trials , and what they foresee as the consequences of success. The presentations will be followed by an open Q&A session. 

Victoria is currently leading techUK’s Accelerating Clean Tech Adoption Working Group as part of its Climate and Resilience Council. Read her latest blog here.

Hope to see you there.
