£20k for Innovative Ideas

No! My BIM friends, this is not for 'BIM' innovative ideas and not for practitioners in the industry. However, I wish someone (you know who I mean from UK perspective) extends this idea to 'BIM' and introduces prize for innovative ideas in BIM adoption. BIM technology is already innovative, well kind of, but what we need to be innovative is in BIM's implementation, engagement at all levels and collaboration. So, the proposed prize for BIM could be called:

"The UK Government's 2016 BIM Prize, looking for innovative ideas from UK students to help the UK Construction industry adopt Level 3 BIM by 70% by 2025"

For now, The mayor of London has launched "The 2013 Mayor's Low Carbon Prize" in partnership with  Seimens for students in London.

"Climate change is the biggest threat to our future and poses a huge challenge for London. That's why we must act now to reduce our emissions and adapt to the changes climate change will bring.

The 2013 Mayor's Low Carbon Prize, in partnership with Siemens, is looking for innovative ideas from London's students to help us slash London's CO2 emissions by 60 per cent by 2025."
