As part of Smart Dublin, the four Dublin local authorities and Enterprise Ireland launched the €100k Small Business Innovation Research Challenge (SBIR) in City Hall today. In line with a push towards a healthier, more liveable city, Dublin is seeking smart, innovative and low cost solutions to increase the number of people cycling in Dublin.  The SBIR Challenge is open for applications from today 8th March until 3rd May 2016. The competition is open to any organisation or individual who develops innovative proposals to increase the number of journeys taken by bicycle in Dublin. See www.SmartDublin.ie for details.
