To coincide with WikiHouse 4.0 we have teamed up with Ordnance Survey and the Land Registry for a series of events on housing to launch their GeoVation Challenge.
Ordnance Survey, along with the Land Registry, are giving away £101,000 in funding. Prizes will be awarded to proposals that find the best solutions for long term housing issues, such as affordability; availability; access; infrastructure and the best use of assets. Proposals must reflect geographical factors, technology and good design. The challenge is open to everyone.
