SBRI Healthcare are pleased to inform interested companies of two opportunities with the Ministry of Defence and techUK. Information as follows:
1. TechUK Innovation Challenge initiative “Health and fitness monitoring and reporting for Defence”
The techUK Innovation Challenge is a joint MOD-techUK quarterly cycle of activity that allows industry to directly engage with information problem owners within MOD. In short, the Challenge allows industry to show how their solutions and products may directly benefit MOD users by proposing prototype and demonstration engagements to showcase their capability.
The first Challenge of 2016 is ‘Health and Fitness Monitoring and Reporting for Defence’, an eye-catching and exciting topic that draws in a range of interesting information perspectives.
