Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) has opened a competition to turn Intelligent Data into service-improving tools.
For this competition, the SBRI will consider two data-gathering techniques:
collecting data from the reports of citizen;
collecting data with the local service vehicles.
What the competition is about:
Your project will be expected to demonstrate intelligent data capture - by individuals and vehicles - and reporting as well as advanced data analysis.
The goal of the project is to reduce service inefficiencies; as a consequence the demonstrator you will present must be able to “record and report local information on a regular cycle”. It must also be scalable and a applicable to different uses and sectors.
NB: the tests must be conducted in Durham County and Blaenau Gwent County for the project to be eligible.
How the SBRI can help you:
The funding is a procurement of a size up to total costs of £50,000, including VAT.
NB: you must be read to start your project by 7th February 2019.
How to apply:
Registration will close on 31st October, and the competition on 7th November.
Applicants will be informed of the decision on 9th January 2019.
