Watford Borough Council seeks innovation champions

An innovation competition has been launched to find technology experts to help make Watford Borough Council a tech-savvy organisation, providing digitally advanced services to its residents.

Published: Thursday, 24th May 2018

There are two separate challenges, inviting developers to create parking-related and town centre footfall technology. Anyone who is up to the challenge can find the full details – including assessment criteria – on our Innovation Competition web pages.

Up to £20,000 of investment funding will be made available for the parking challenge, while up to £10,000 will be available for the footfall challenge. The money will be provided in two stages – 50% upfront, and 50% at the completion of the trial. The deadline for applications is Monday 11 June.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “We are a bold and progressive council and we’re always looking at ways that we can improve services for people who live in our town. I want your thoughts on how we can be a tech-savvy council. I look forward to hearing from you!”

Watford Borough Council is hosting the Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) Innovation Competition with Digital Catapult, the UK's leading advanced digital technology innovation centre. Find out more about Digital Catapult.
