Sheffield Smart Lab
We have launched a programme called Sheffield Smart Lab with Sheffield City Council and Ferrovial Services, which invites entrepreneurs and start-ups to develop and demonstrate their pioneering solutions which will help to promote Sheffield as a city of innovation.
Sheffield Smart Lab gives us the opportunity to think differently about problem-solving, by helping us to find creative, solution-focused ideas. Sheffield will become a testbed for up to 10 exciting new innovations, exposing the city to new ideas, and giving innovators the opportunity to test their products in a real life situation. The programme focuses on two challenges, the first is Energising the City Centre, where we are looking to inject new vibrancy into the city centre by enabling people to maximise all that the centre has to offer. The second challenge is is Helping People to Live Independently.where we are looking at ways to transform the support and care of housebound adults in the city.
