Innovate UK’s Net Zero Living Digital Accelerator - Competition Briefing Webinar
Recording now available
The Innovate UK Net Zero Living programme has launched the first User Focused Products competition – Net Zero Living Digital Accelerator Round 1.
The aim of the £1.5million Digital Accelerator Round 1 competition is to support ambitious early stage growth businesses in developing and delivering net zero in relation to challenges based on place.
This competition is for digital, software or data led solutions which will help places to accelerate their journey to net zero. It’s a collaborative competition that encourages potential end users to be involved in the project (with total grant funding request between £150,000 and £300,000) to ensure that the needs are met and to help the solution to be scalable or replicable.
The projects must make use of a number of open and shared data sets across a range of place relevant topics, including, but not limited to:
• Energy vectors and assets
• Citizens and communities
• Carbon emissions
Successful applicants will be able to apply best practice principles around data governance and sharing and will be supported over the duration of the project by dedicated technical expertise to deliver these practices.
The competition opens from the 24th April and full details can be found here.
20 hours of dedicated technical support is available for each project from an Innovate UK delivery partner.
