Green City Thinking. The Dutch Connectors: Research, Innovation and Partnerships
The Netherlands is the UKs third largest trade partner with mutually beneficial import and export agreements. These strong Anglo-Dutch relationships are helping the construction industry, on both sides of the North Sea, prosper at a global level.
Embassy of the Netherlands, in collaboration with The Building Centre, is bringing together experts in Dutch design, construction, academia and business to share their experience of partnering with UK organisations and disseminate innovative architectural ideas.
The seminar takes place during Ecobuild, when the industry focus is firmly on London.
From 2.30pm key speakers will highlight innovative solutions and give an insight into how to win work and deliver projects in the Netherlands.
