IoTUK Challenger: North

Posted on: 05/09/2018

Can you help organisations with real-world applications of IoT services or products to help solve their current challenges?

The Internet of Things is a rapidly growing area of tech, encompassing creative projects alongside real-world applications across health, transport, environment, and more. To explore the potential of IoT, ODI Leeds are collaborating with IoTUK and Digital Catapult to bring you IoTUK Challenger North. Taking place in Leeds on Thursday 20 & Friday 21 September, it is an opportunity for SMEs to work with public and private sector organisations to create IoT solutions for pressing challenges.

SMEs with IoT services/products apply to take part in the IoTUK Challenger North via the application page below. If they are shortlisted, they will be invited to the challenger event in Leeds, where they can talk to the public and private sector organisations to explore if their IoT service/product is the right solution for their challenge. The SMEs can also access additional support covering commercialisation and business models, technical support, and more. At the end, SMEs will pitch their proposal.

On top of this, there will be:

  • Themed prizes from ODI Leeds (previous prizes have included Pimoroni swag, smart watches, Raspberry Pi kits, sensors, maker goodies and more)
  • Networking opportunities with a vibrant crowd made up of fellow participants, judges, challenge-owners, and mentors
  • Potential test-beds and trials of prototypes with specific challenge-owners
  • Support and mentoring for the best ideas to come out of the event
