Collaboration is key: BPF President and tech consultant Dan Hughes on the need for a gov-backed digital forum
The results of The Liquid Report: Leading the Digital Transformation of Global Real Estate were published this week based on research carried out by proptech consultant Dan Hughes.
It calls for the creation of a government-backed digital real estate forum to connect proptech initiatives, for new strategies to unlock R&D spending and for real estate to put digitalisation at the heart of business strategy.
In terms of how the UK’s expertise in and around tech compared with that of other countries, the report reveals that it is a front-runner regarding capacity for innovation, data infrastructure, market transparency and quality of education, but falls behind other nations in terms of venture capital investment and technology infrastructure.
Hughes and BPF President Melanie Leech join EG for a podcast on the report findings and key next steps.
