Solving Business Problems with Environmental Data
Joint NERC / TSB feasibility studies
The Natural Environment Research Council and the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) are investing £4m in 33 feasibility studies which use environmental data to develop new solutions to business problems. £1m of this funding is for projects specifically using data from space satellites.
The feasibilty studies are looking to develop solutions and services which, through the integration of multiple environmental datasets or environmental data from other sources (such as 'business data'), offer specific commercial benefits and/or limit business risks and increase resilience.
Each project is business-led and involves an end user. Of the 33 projects funded, 21 include a NERC funded academic partner.
A full list of all the projects being funded under this programme can be found on the TSB website .
Projects will start in Spring 2014 and will run from three months up to a year.
