Across the UK, we’ve been experiencing one of most severe winters we’ve seen for several years. Combined with a particularly virulent flu season, the odds have been well and truly stacked against an already over-stretched NHS.
No doubt, we’ve all seen press stories on how A&E departments have been forced to treat patients in corridors as surgery waiting lists rise. That’s why I was so pleased to be involved in a recent project that resulted in a new hospital opening on time and on budget.
Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary boasts some of the most up-to-date technology currently available within the NHS. This includes medical grade ubiquitous WiFi throughout, which has been fully tested and accepted – and is available to all patients and staff.
Imagine being able to use the Internet of Things (IoT) to help provide care for the elderly at home. Or being able to optimise energy consumption of buildings using data…
These are just two of the societal issues that we’re looking tackle as part of our Open Innovation challenges with Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP).
We’re on the search to find some of the UK’s best start-ups with the vision to help transform Manchester through smart technologies.
Kicking off in March, we want eight SMEs to take part in the challenges running over 2 months – with the opportunity to work with partners from public sector, corporate and academic worlds. This is all part of Manchester’s CityVerve Internet of Things test-bed, which is collecting and sharing data from across the city to create a range of solutions the people living and working there.
Sustainability, traffic congestion, and long-term health conditions are all on the hit list for the Open Innovation challenges. Combining data, technology and creativity, here’s the four briefs we’re asking SMEs to respond to before entries close on February 14th:
