The Challenge on Marine Plastic Pollution – A Geovation Innovation Challenge

We at Geovation,  with the assistance from Ordnance Survey and the the UK Hydrographic Office are planning on running a 6-8 week innovation challenge in Autumn 2021 to explore the problem of marine plastics in the ocean, identify and ideate on solutions, and put them to the test.

To do so we are gathering the best data available including geospatial data from the Ordnance Survey and maritime data from the UK Hydrographic Office, the brightest minds, innovators and start-ups to work together and propose real solutions.
Our approach is grounded in research and collaboration.

We are looking for like-minded organisations to help us unlock this challenge and join in to find solutions to this endemic problem. Want to join us? We would love to have a chat and tell you more! Please contact [email protected] for more details.
