The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) and the G+ Global Offshore Wind Health and Safety Organisation, and their offshore wind farm developer partners (the Challengers) are seeking a dynamic fall arrest system that understands the difference between a fall and normal movement from wave action. The winning business(es) in this competition will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution to the, and receive support from the KTN, ORE Catapult and the wider InnovateUK network.
Innovative Operator Training & Education in the Maritime Environment
ABP handles around one-quarter of the nation's seaborne trade, contributing £7.5 billion to the economy every year and supporting 119,000 jobs. ABP also operates one of the UK's busiest rail terminals at Hams Hall in the Midlands. Challenge 3: Enhancing efficiency through Operator Learning and Assisted Inspection Technologies ABP need to look at the way people are using their equipment and develop a learning for them so that they use them in both an environmentally friendly fashion and ensure care for equipment so that it runs at its most efficient. The equipment may also assist the people in their operation provided the operator can take full control at the appropriate time. ABP is looking for innovation to develop personal learning as well as data collection on equipment to build a picture of how it is being used. Telemetry may be an option to feed in usage data and then develop in to learning suites where people can analyse the data and use it to make a more efficient working environment.

Changing human behaviours to combat climate change
If the UK is to meet its target of net zero emissions by 2050, then human behaviours will have to change. The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is working with ENGIE to identify innovative solutions that will help to instigate, facilitate and sustain these changes. Behavioural change is required at both an individual and organisational level and ENGIE is interested in solutions that seek to change behaviour in ways that support the rapid transition to zero carbon. ENGIE is committed to be the global leader in the zero carbon transition and has a strong track record of deploying innovative, low carbon solutions across the Energy, Services and Regeneration sectors. Through this challenge ENGIE is looking to identify UK SMEs that it will invite to apply for funding under Round 4 of the ENGIE UKRI Clean Growth Innovation Fund. Only companies that are successful under this KTN iX challenge will be eligible for funding under Round 4.
