Deliver data engineering and core functionality for scale-up invitation to tender

For the Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo), the connected digital twin of critical infrastructure for climate change resilience and adaptation

Connected Places Catapult is seeking a supplier to help deliver the data engineering and core functionality, including descriptive data visualisation, required to scale up the connected digital twin.

This involves collaborative working as part of an interdisciplinary project team, dealing with uncertainty, providing thought leadership on practical data standards and sharing, and creating innovative solutions to data problems. 

The budget for this work is £350,000 plus VAT, to start in September 2022 and finish by 31 March 2023. Connected Places Catapult intends to fund CReDo for the following two years. 

The output of the work and all IP arising from it will be owned by Connected Places Catapult, with an intention to make it publicly available. Any background IP brought into the project by the supplier will remain with the supplier. Connected Places Catapult welcomes indications of how suppliers intend to leverage the outputs of this work to support exploitation of their own IP.  

Background

Connected Places Catapult is working with Anglian Water, UK Power Networks and BT to develop the Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo). CReDo aims to be a connected digital twin of critical infrastructure that helps the cross-sectoral infrastructure network adapt to climate change and improve climate resilience.  

CReDo showcases the advantages of combining data and insights across sectoral and organisational boundaries. The resulting improved coordination of operational and investment decisions, including inter- and intra-sector collaboration, will increase resilience against extreme weather events. At present this covers infrastructure across the water, energy and telecoms sectors, but long-term ambition is to capture additional sectors, at national scale.

The first phase of CReDo was funded by a collaboration between Connected Places Catapult and the Centre for Digital Built Britain. Connected Places Catapult has taken over as lead organisation for the next stage of development. In addition, Connected Places Catapult is the new home of the Digital Twin Hub, a multi-sector industry and Catapult Network partnership.

Hey team - I only found about this a few weeks ago but blew my mind - Home | Planetary Computer (microsoft.com)

It is an open source global eco-system of data providers bringing together environmental data from various sources (several peta-bytes now) to help address environmental sustainability and earth science. All data is freely available and whilst visualised using QGIS for free, equally the data can be integrated into any 

 

In parallel we are partnered with the MetOffice to build a new supercomputer specifically for climate modelling - Met Office and Microsoft to deliver more accurate weather and climate forecasts

If you are interested could setup a call with the team, can help accelerate CreDo ambitions I would have thought (particularly if linked to NUAR and some of the other infra data sharing schemes, which are powered by Azure)..........  provides a scalable environment that is very close to public release....

Let me know if you want to discuss, Microsoft is running a large start-up accelerator programme over the next 12 months, might be opportunity to partner to accelerate CreDo.

Catch up soon crew, keep up the awesome work!

Kevin

Kevin, I actually connected the original CReDo team with the Microsoft Planetary Computer last July so they are aware of each other. That was through Alma Cardenas at Microsoft and an organisation in the Netherlands called Deltares. Happy to have a chat and fill you in if it would be helpful.

That is awesome Melissa, it would be great to catch up, learnt that there a lot of sector level data sharing initiatives across the globe we are involved in, wondering how best to collate and share the learnings.

A great deal kick starting in the UK as well, be good to share notes and explore whether we can collectively join some dots!

 

Catch up soon.
