Taking part in innovation
To get involved with innovation at Highways England, you can contact us if you can help with our key themes and challenges, and get involved in any targeted research and innovation competitions we either run or support.
To help us solve some of our challenges, we plan to run targeted research and innovation competitions. These competitions will support the transformation of the strategic road network by unlocking new knowledge for our future. The challenges will be informed by our innovation themes, and business requirements, and will support our three imperatives, safety, delivery and customer service.
Competitions will be aimed at a wide cross section of our research and innovation network both with existing and new innovation partners. Funding will be available for the best projects which support our three imperatives and long term vision and align to the challenge’s brief. These will either be run by, or supported by Highways England.
