Organisations can apply for a share of £250,000, including VAT, to investigate how technology can be used to monitor developments of all sizes and types.
This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition with funding provided by the GovTech Catalyst Waltham Forest Council.
The aim of the competition is to investigate how technology can be used to monitor developments of all sizes and types, building an accurate picture of development status from permission to completion and occupation.
The outcome should be solutions which create an accurate timeline of development. The developed tool will be tested to ensure it enables planners to make more informed decisions.
The overall programme will be delivered over 2 phases. This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.
Phase 1: research and development contracts, feasibility study
The first phase involves research and development contracts being awarded to demonstrate technical feasibility of the proposed solution.
Phase 2: research and development contracts, prototype development and testing
The second phase involves up to 2 R&D contracts being awarded to businesses chosen from the successful phase 1 applicants.Further information: Go to the full advertisement
