Apply to our new stimulus fund that will support projects that help increase access to data and drive innovation in the engineering sector with an emphasis on improving safety

With the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, the ODI is pleased to announce the launch of a new stimulus fund that will support projects that help increase access to data and drive innovation in the engineering sector with an emphasis on improving safety

The creation of the fund follows the publication of our joint Insight report on sharing engineering data, which highlighted the benefits of increasing access to data and open innovation, and our shared manifesto which identifies ways to build a stronger engineering data infrastructure.

The fund will provide a total of £150,000 of funding for up to six projects that help to deliver on the recommendations in the manifesto by:

  • exploring innovative ways to improve safety in line with the mission of the Lloyd’s Register Foundation
  • increasing access to data, by supporting the publication of open data or sharing of data, across the public and/or private sector
  • encouraging collaboration across organisations, e.g. to build new data infrastructure, or explore new ways to govern and steward data such as data trusts
  • demonstrating the value of open approaches, by encouraging the creation of openly licensing outputs, tools and guidance
