Enter our GeoVation Challenge
Together with Land Registry, we have launched the latest GeoVation Challenge calling for ideas to help enable people in Britain to live in better places.
Innovation Challenges from Ordnance Survey
If you have an idea where geography forms part of the solution why not enter our GeoVation Challenge for a chance to win funding to help develop your idea.
GeoVation Challenges address specific community needs, which may be satisfied, in part, through the use of geography. Entrepreneurs, developers, community groups, innovators can enter our GeoVation Challenges for a chance to win innovation funding to help develop their ideas.
Our challenges have focused on real problems that require collaboration and innovative thinking across all sectors of the economy to address them.
Winners of our challenges have come in all shapes and sizes. We have compiled some case studies on the winning solutions.
