Thames Valley Berkshire Smart City Cluster - first round of Challenge Calls

We are pleased to announce that the first round of Challenge Calls is being advertised by Reading Borough Council on behalf of the Thames Valley Berkshire Smart City Cluster project.

This first Call consists of four Challenges, focusing on:

  • tackling loneliness
  • reducing falls in the elderly
  • supporting independence in travel
  • targeting investment to improve energy efficiency in homes.

Each Challenge will involve a development and pilot phase so that the benefits can be evaluated and knowledge can be shared as these are common challenges faced by councils across the UK. Grants of up to £100,000 are available for each Challenge.

If you are a business who is interested, the Call has been published by Reading Borough Council on the Reading Borough Council In-Tend portal.

An information event is being held at 6.30pm on Wednesday 24 April 2019, at the Marketing Suite, 100 Longwater Avenue, Green Park, Reading, RG2 6GP, and will consist of a presentation overview of the first Call, Q&A and pizza will be provided. There will also be an opportunity for those looking to make contacts and partner up.

Answers to questions will be published on the portal after the event. 

If you wish to attend the event please register here.
