SOSE partners CivTech to boost public services
Jane Morrison-Ross: opportunities
South of Scotland Enterprise has teamed up with the CivTech programme to apply IT solutions to public sector services and challenges.
In a first for a Scottish enterprise agency, SOSE has agreed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Scottish Government initiative.
SOSE is already working with the programme by co-sponsoring two CivTech Challenges.
The first is a partnership with John Muir Trust, the Langholm Initiative community development trust and Southern Uplands Partnership aiming to discover how technology can help landowners better understand the potential for carbon storage on and inform land-use decisions.
