Melissa Zanocco OBE is head of programmes for the Infrastructure Client Group. She discusses the importance of bringing together the built environment and the natural world.

“Data is really the fabric that enables that decision making in terms of the realities and potentialities”

Molly Blatchley-Lewis, Global Cities, Transport & Infrastructure – Europe Lead for Accenture emphasised the importance of making data-driven decisions.

IOTICS’ own Head of Engagement, Ali Nicholl, suggested cooperation could be the key to building smart, “enchanted” places in the “natural and built environment”
