A competition hosted by the London Mayor's Office and the Institute for Sustainability is encouraging small businesses and entrepreneurs to develop new forms of technology to help major regeneration projects cope with the demands of London’s growing population.

Winners of the competition will earn the opportunity to pitch their innovations to organizations involved in some of the highest-profile redevelopment districts in the capital including Imperial West and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Supporting smart city innovation
The regeneration areas are members of the Smart London Districts Network, created by the Smart London Board with the aim of supporting the Mayor of London’s vision for smart city innovation.

"This competition provides an opportunity to connect innovators with some of the capital’s highest profile businesses; and to support their ambition to take forward some of London’s largest areas of redevelopment," said Matthew Pencharz, senior advisor to the Mayor of London on Environment and Energy.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, June 12, 2015. Click here for additional details on the competition and how to enter it.
