We live in an age where vast amounts of data are generated every day. From GP visits to social media posts, weather information to videos, this data – high volume, diverse and fast – is what is known as Big Data.
Impact Lab will bring SMEs and individual innovators together with researchers to analyse data, and create new products and services focusing on safeguarding the environment.
This £6.4m part-funded ERDF project will be delivered by the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth with the Met Office, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Rothamsted Research, Plymouth College of Art and Exeter City Futures.
