Smart Belfast, in partnership with Smart Dublin, have launched £120,000 SBRI competition “Amazing Spaces, Smart Places” for companies to explore the use of innovative digital technology and data-driven solutions to help manage parks and open spaces.
Contracts of up to £20,000 will be awarded for a period of four months to successful applicants to trial innovative solutions that seek to make our open spaces safer for citizens while keeping them accessible and ensuring that we respect the privacy of our users.
The competition is in the form of a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) and is focused mainly on Belfast (Northern Ireland) but there may also be opportunities to develop proofs of concepts in the Dublin (Rep. of Ireland) as well.
SBRI competitions are open to all organisations within the EU (not just SMEs). Your application should be able to demonstrate tech innovation related to the challenge, and show a potential route to market for your ideas.
