Last year we had a great year at GeoVation with funding awarded to 8 GeoVation Challenge winners in our ‘How can Britain feed itself?’ and ‘How can we improve transport in Britain?’ Challenges. Since then our winners have been busy getting their ideas up and running as a result of GeoVation Challenge funding – you can catch up with their progress here on the blog.
In 2012 we are focusing our GeoVation Challenges on key areas where we think geography can play a positive role in enabling change. We want this year to be our biggest yet! Very soon we’ll be announcing our GeoVation Challenges and calling for entrepreneurs, developers and community groups to focus their efforts to address two distinct challenges. Both challenges will conclude, in the summer, at a GeoVation Showcase where the top ideas will be awarded funding to help them develop.
So keep visiting the blog and Enter the Challenge page for the latest news on the launch of our Challenges.
