Utilising AI techniques to tackle Scotland’s, and the World’s, climate emergency

Scottish Enterprise, in collaboration with the Scottish Government, calls on innovative organisations to help solve the Climate Emergency by harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The specific focus of this competition is in the use of AI to enable or significantly enhance products or processes that help to mitigate factors contributing to the climate emergency or to support adaptation to its impact.

This 100% funded R&D SBRI project will provide up to 6 contracts of £28,000 over a 10 week period in phase 1 with up to £133,000 available for three successful phase 2 solutions over the following 12 months.

They are seeking creative, cutting-edge proposals that can demonstrate the ability to support climate change mitigation and adaption.

The competition seeks to encourage wide participation and with minimal prescription of the nature or focus of proposed ideas. They are focused on the impact and ability to realise this impact, not only in contribution to Scotland’s net zero targets, but in how Scotland can deliver innovative solutions that can be delivered to help other countries to respond to the climate emergency.

If you think you can apply AI technology to tackle the Climate Emergency please register your interest and access the competition documents.

The deadline for submission is 06/01/2020 at 12 noon.
