A great GeoVation Camp at Ordnance Survey

Chris Parker

audienceAfter an exciting, intense and fun GeoVation Camp we in the GeoVation Team are catching our breath and planning the GeoVation Showcase on 4 May at Ordnance Survey. We are also eagerly awaiting the announcement of the GeoVation Challenge finalists who will be invited to pitch for a slice of £150 000 at the showcase.

The team was hugely impressed by what was achieved by all the teams at the camp, working through the Innovation = Problem x Solution x Execution process and culminating in 19 excellent 2 minute pitches.

We would like to thank all of those who contributed to the camp: the GeoVation judging panel, GeoVation helpers and design students – what a creative team they were, the GeoVation Camp facilitators, GeoVation Challenge supporters and our Ordnance Survey colleagues for hosting the event.

Most of all though we would like to thank the GeoVation campers for developing such inspiring ideas and we look forward to seeing all of you again at the GeoVation Showcase on 4 May.
