Do you have any ideas on how to get more people cycling in Dublin? 

A €100k Small Business Innovation Research Challenge (SBIR) has been launched. 

The competition is open to any small company, to developers of ICT and software solution providers, and to universities and service providers.

“We want to increase cycling in Dublin, both across the Dublin region and in the city centre with a target for a quarter of all trips in the city centre to be taken by bike,” says Sarah Scannell, recently appointed ‎cycling and walking promotion officer, Dublin City Council. 

The SBIR challenge will give seed funding for companies and individuals to develop new and data-driven proposals to accomplish this goal.

The SBIR challenge is a joint initiative between Smart Dublin and Enterprise Ireland and is open for applications until 3rd May 2016.
