This event is taking place on 16th July 2018 from 2pm to 4pm in central Birmingham. 

The Expression of Interest (EOI) application process is open until 16 August 2018.

There was a high demand in Round 1 with 93 EOIs submitted, of which 16 projects were invited to submit a full application.  An announcement on the successful projects is expected shortly. Read more
