Deadline: 2019-08-07 Award: £1,000,000 Open to: UK entities and citizens*
The aim of the Tech to Connect Challenge is to draw out and help develop ideas that can help combat social isolation using technology. This can be by developing new ways for people, or the organisation itself, to interact with others. By lending the right assistance to organisations that know the problem of isolation best, the hope is that technology can be targeted properly and delivered in a way that best reflects the needs of its users. The challenge prize will help finalists develop their new ideas into working prototypes and plan for their implementation.
