An opportunity has arisen to work with Police Scotland on an R&D contract – to develop an integrated technological solution for police custody that can remotely monitor individuals and provide early warning and intervention alert systems.
Successful companies secure 100% funding, retain the IP developed during the competition and have the ability to commercialise the solution in broader markets both at home and abroad.
Up to five winners will secure the initial contracts of £30k to do a feasibility piece and have potential for a larger piece of funding up to £200k to build a prototype to be demonstrated and tested. Scottish Enterprise are supporting this call through funding via the Can Do Innovation Challenge Fund. The funding mechanism is SBRI and the closing date is 27th March 2019.
You are invited to an information event at the Police College in Tulliallan on 4th March where you can hear more about the challenge. It includes a Q&A with Police Scotland on the scope, and a representative of NHS Lothians given the digital health angle of the project.
