SMEs & Start-ups: Launch your smart city venture
Join us in the 4th workshop hosted by SMART Oxford. This particular session focuses on opportunities with research institutions like the Satellite Applications Catapult and the European Space Agency (ESA) based at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus to help develop, prototype and deploy smart solutions.
We are aiming to attract SMEs and start-ups who have an idea, an area of technological expertise, or even just an interest in finding ways to collaborate and innovate with other like minded organisations, to find new ways to improve the Oxford city region.
While our focus is on Oxford-centred issues and solutions, these institutions have the knowledge and expertise of the smart city market and how solutions can be applied to cities nationally and even worldwide.
Who should attend?
If you are a start up or SME interested in:
- Exploring the power of technology to improve your city
- Realising your full potential in the smart city market
- Capitalising on innovative technology solutions and harnessing all available data and case studies
What will I learn?
During this session you will learn how to work with research institutions like the Catapults. They work with small businesses and start-ups to help develop, prototype, test, and deploy their smart city products to have the maximum benefit and impact to the cities and to the businesses themselves. This next workshop focuses on how to work with institutions like the Catapults, including:
- Introducing the UK Catapult programme
- Understanding opportunities to collaborate
- Exploration of case studies of collaboration and successful development of innovation based business.
By attending this workshop, Smart Oxford will help to connect you with their innovative network and are working on setting up a co-working space in the centre of Oxford, which you may be able to benefit from.
