We’re pleased to announce the latest version of the GeoVation Booklet has now been published!  The booklet includes information on GeoVation Challenges and case studies on winning ideas!

The booklet has some intereImage of the GeoVation booklet cover and hyperlink to downloadsting facts about GeoVation which was launched in October 2009. In that time:

2511 participants have registered

630 ideas have been submitted

77 teams have participated in GeoVation Camps and

28 winners have been awarded a share of over £637,000 in innovation funding to develop their ventures.

There’s information on all our GeoVation  challenges from our first GeoVation Awards Programme in 2009  through our problem focussed challenges aimed at building local resilience. In 2010 we launched 2 challenges focussed on how we could feed ourselves in Britain and reduce the environmental impact of transport in a sustainable way. In 2012 we ran a challenge focussed on resolving neighbourhood problems and building a sense of community, and a further challenge themed around connecting communities and visitors along the new Wales Coast Path to tie in with its launch.  In 2013 the GeoVation Challenge focussed on improving environmental performance, set against the context that UK companies could save £6 billion a year if they used resources more efficiently. Our latest  challenge aimed at encouraging active lifestyles  was focussed on the £8bn cost to the UK economy as a result of our inactivity.

We’ve made the booklet available online, so you can find out how you can innovate with GeoVation, the GeoVation journey, about the 28 winners Ordnance Survey has funded  and the ideas they have launched or which are in development.
