Launch of North East Smart Ports Testbed
New digital technology project that aims to work with ports and smart suppliers in North East England.
A new initiative that aims to pilot smart digital initiatives to boost trade and foster economic growth in North East England’s ports has been launched.
Digital and industry experts, academia, regional authorities and the Port of Berwick, Port of Blyth, Port of Sunderland, Teesport and Port of Tyne will seek to develop distinct satellite-based solutions and digital programmes as part of the Smart Port North East Testbed.
The initiative was developed by Urban Foresight on behalf of the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence as part of a ground breaking open innovation programme to use space technology and satellite data to tackle significant societal challenges.
