GeoVators focus on transport


Following our successful ‘How can we improve transport in Britain?’ GeoVation Camp at Ordnance Survey in March, the local Daily Echo newspaper ran an article ‘ Inventors focus on transport’ to tie in with their Save Fuel Campaign, looking at ways around escalating fuel prices.

Nine of the finalists, selected at this weekend will be pitching for a slice of £150 000 funding at the GeoVation Showcase to be held at Ordnance Survey on 4 May.  There are also awards for best use of OS OpenData.  All of the ideas are looking at sustainable ways, using geography,  to improve transport in this country.  If you would like to learn about the ideas and be part of the audience when they pitch ‘Dragon’s Den’ style to our panel of judges register now for your free ticket.

There will also be the opportunity for you to vote for your favourite in the Community Award and network with other innovators, technologists and those involved in food and transport sustainability.
