SBRI grant: using Intelligent Data to improve the services of local councils

Updated: Oct 24, 2018


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.

To apply, you’ll need to register on Innovate UK's website.
