This competition will support innovative research projects centered on both Cambridge (equipment and communications) and London (software and services) SME clusters and aims to stimulate this hotspot of 'Internet of Things' industries by enabling companies to go further or faster towards commercial success. We want to draw investment and people into the area, and to encourage networking and collaboration to strengthen the cluster. We are looking for projects that may be too risky for companies to take forward without any support, or take into new innovative areas, and where the majority of the project activities are carried out in Cambridge or London. Places are limited, so register now to avoid disappointment. Find out more »
