Dublin City Council through their Smart Dublin regional initiative have recently launched an SBIR call for tenders which are relevant to the software development sector.

The tender closes on the 3rd of May and attendance at the information event is not mandatory.

Smart Dublin is an initiative of the four Dublin Local Authorities to engage with smart technology providers, researchers and citizens to solve city challenges and improve city life.

SBIR refers to the public procurement of research and development on new innovative solutions before they are commercially available. It involves different suppliers competing through different phases of development, while the risks and benefits are shared between the procurers and the suppliers under market conditions. Developments are 100% funded and focused on specific identified needs, increasing the chance of exploitation. Full details of the call are available on eTenders.

Smart Dublin recently launched this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) competition, in collaboration with Enterprise Ireland.
