Utilities innovation challenge

Scope is bringing the utilities sector, industry experts and disabled people together for a 1 day innovation challenge.

In person
25th January 2024

The challenges disabled people face with the utilities sector aren’t going away. We need to work together to find innovative ways to solve problems.

Scope wants to arm the sector with the knowledge and tools to address these challenges. We’re inviting people from across the utilities sector, industry experts and disabled people.

We’ll be updating the sector on our latest utilities research. You’ll learn about real and varied disabled experiences throughout the day. And we’ll join forces in a facilitated hackathon to find unique solutions together.
