PUBLISHED: 14:00 13 November 2014

The third and fourth challenges in a Government-backed competition to find ‘smart city’ technology ideas has been opened at Canary Wharf.

Applications are now being invited from start-ups and companies focused on technology for ‘integrated resource management’ and ‘automated building management’.

It is part of Canary Wharf Group’s ‘Cognicity’ programme launched on October 21 with Whitehall support to develop world-class ‘smart cities’ technologies with challenges in six categories.

The winners of each challenge get £50,000 and are offered the chance to develop and pilot their technologies at Canary Wharf.

Applications are being made online at the Cognicity microsite. Successful applicants move in to start the accelerator programmes in the New year.

Applications with technology solutions for the first two challenges, ‘sustainable buildings’ and ‘integrated transport’, are open until November 30.

Start-ups can apply online through Cognicity microsite to move into Canary Wharf’s Level39 accelerator space at One Canada Square in the New Year, where they get mentoring and training from major industry players.
