CivTech 2.0





Support for innovation projects

Accelerator programme winners announced.

Nine projects will drive forward new approaches to public sector innovation Finance Secretary Derek Mackay has announced.

The Scottish Government-run CivTech® accelerator programme harnesses entrepreneurial tech innovation – typically from start-ups and SMEs – to solve identified public sector challenges, creating better public services and economic development opportunities.

Announcing the winners during a visit to Codebase in Edinburgh, he said:

“Scotland is highly regarded around the world for supporting ambitious businesses to innovate and grow.

“Following a hugely successful pilot earlier in the year, I am delighted to announce the winning companies who will now work to create innovative solutions to public sector challenges. These range from a smarter booking system for outpatient appointments, to using data to improve global perceptions of Scotland, to combating bird of prey persecution.

“As the first pan-public sector tech accelerator of its kind, CivTech® has already demonstrated its ability to build businesses, create jobs and enhance our international reputation for innovation, while driving improvement in the delivery of public services. I now look forward to seeing this success emulated in CivTech® 2.0.”
