Immense shortlisted for two Smart Cities awards

February 1st, 2019

Immense Simulations have been shortlisted for two awards at this year's Smart Cities UK conference in London.

The team have been nominated for an award in the transportation category for Immense's work with England's Economic Heartland. For the project we developed a prototype simulation platform to support policy decision making by exploring the implication of development and mobility proposals across the EEH region. This was a fantastic project to work on and we are delighted to have been recognised and shortlisted for the awards.

Immense are also in the running for the Smart Cities UK Accelerator Competition .The Accelorator session recognises the achievements of start-ups seeking to support local authorities to deliver economic and social changes.

Each year the Accelerator receives hundreds of applications, but only those who have shown the strongest impact are selected to pitch at the conference every year. Each company is provided five minutes to impress the judges and audience, made up of over 200 leaders across the UK, Europe and Asia.
