Solving Business Problems with Environmental Data

Environmental factors such as climate change and availability of resources are increasing business risk and limiting growth for some sectors while also creating new business opportunities. Businesses that can better understand the impact of the environment on their operations and adapt will increase resilience and be able to capitalise on new trends and mitigate emergent risks. The challenge is to match multiple environmental data owners with organisations who could benefit from the information they could collaboratively provide using software solutions tailored to the specific needs of an industry or community.

This will be the first of four regional ‘road show’ events being held ahead of the competition to enable potential applicants to understand the nature and spirit of the Technology Strategy Board/NERC call, its intentions to make use of environmental data, and its timescales. In addition, potential applicants will have an opportunity to explore some trial data sets and network with potential partners.
