£50,000 STFC Hartree Centre Competition for UK SMEs

SMEs have the chance to win up to £25,000 each in ‘Proof of Principle’ voucher prizes to help them unlock the business opportunities offered by the Internet of Things (IoT).

The IoT is one of the fastest moving, most enthralling fields in technology today. Collecting, exchanging, analysing and exploiting data through networks incorporating all kinds of sensor- and internet-enabled devices and objects, it offers huge potential to boost business – and not just for companies harnessing the technologies but for those supplying them too.
Through ‘Proof of Principle’ vouchers redeemable against the knowledge, facilities and resources of the STFC Hartree Centre – an acknowledged centre of excellence in the development, testing and application of IoT technologies – this competition offers SMEs an outstanding chance to drive maturing projects forward by utilising world class data specialists and technical experts.
