GeoVation 2012

Forget the Olympics and Euro 2012, the biggest competition in 2012 is the GeoVation Challenge!

We will be running two separate GeoVation challenges, both aimed at helping to solve a particular problem. The 2012 programme will ask entrepreneurs, developers and community groups to focus their efforts on using geography to address two distinct challenges.

Innovators, developers and IT experts across the South East rose to the challenge in November 2011, when they took part in an innovative competition from Kent Council, sponsored by the GeoVation project.
