IoTUK BOOST COMPETITION - apply now!

By Karen Meechan

IoTUK BOOST COMPETITION - apply now!

This is a nationally funded programme designed to amplify the UK's Internet of Things (IoT) capability and opportunities. 

CENSIS, in conjunction with The Data Lab and The University of Edinburgh's Informatics Ventures, has now launched a competition to enable companies to accelerate their IoT products or services to a robust and fundable proposition.

20 companies will be selected to attend an intensive two-day workshop in Glasgow.

Up to five companies will then be selected for one-month of incubation support and mentoring.

Our theme is 'People and their Environments' and we anticipate that we will be looking for new product and service ideas in areas such as:

Smart cities / future cities

Mobility / smart transport

Natural environment / environmental monitoring

Enabling living spaces (assisted living, long-term care, energy efficiency etc.)

General Internet of Things applications around how people live

More information about the IoTUK Boost Competition, application details and timescales can be found on our website.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS Monday 11th January, 2016 AT 12 NOON
