New HS2 Innovation Accelerator opens project harnesses Artificial Intelligence

Listen to this article

HS2 Ltd has opened applications for innovative tech start-ups to join its successful Innovation Accelerator programme. 

The initiative, now assembling its fifth cohort, is seeking five candidates to harness the power of Artificial Intelligence to help drive smooth delivery of design changes across the construction phase of the HS2 programme.

Applications are also open to SMEs with innovative technology-driven solutions to streamlining programme-wide delivery schedules.   

Commenting, HS2 Ltd innovation manager, Jon Kelly said:

“Cascading design revisions through a live building programme, such as innovations to reduce embedded carbon or alter any detail of its systems, stations or depots is challenging, especially one on HS2’s scale.

“To help smooth the process, we’re looking for innovative tech start-ups with applications to both design and game plan implementation scenarios that will help strengthen understanding of how the best results can be achieved.”

Applications to join the fifth cohort close on 30 October.
