The ERDF outline application has been successful and we have been invited to progress to Full Stage Application. The Big Data Corridor (BDC) is a new initiative led by Birmingham City Council in partnership with Aston University, Future Cities Catapult, Centro, Telensa, Innovation Birmingham, local SMEs and community groups of the Eastern Corridor Smart Demonstrator. It aims to create an innovative, connected data marketplace - a new disruptive economy - where SMEs use data to create new applications, services and experiences to serve personalised demand for businesses and communities in the Corridor, generating social and environmental value alongside hard economic impacts.
SMEs will be supported to use data and technologies to create new services, and products that will respond to specific challenges in East Birmingham to deliver to beneficiaries in the Corridor, generating social, environmental and economic value. It will create new businesses, help existing companies expand and provide quality new jobs for local people.
