4. Description: Software package and information systems. Teesside University is an ambitious and enterprising university for a focused and pragmatic global new generation. Focused on making a real difference to the lives of people and the success of businesses and the economy.

The new open access Industrial Digitalisation Technology Centre (IDTC) will provide a range of knowledge transfer activities designed to grow absorptive capacity and drive digitalisation into regional SME’s. It will provide a collaborative working space and drive awareness of the benefits of industrial digitisation.

We are looking for a cloud-based management and IOT platform to bridge engineering automation, industrial control, data capture and data processing. The platform will be accessible to Tees Valley SMEs through the project. This will give them access to IOT devices, industrial communications, automation, and business management systems.

The platform will primarily be used for demonstration and R&D on the university campus but will enable remote access via sub-tenancies or defined user groups to businesses to enable them to trial or deploy developed solutions.

The Industrial Digitalisation Technology Centre (IDTC) project is receiving up to £1,138,255 of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. This project is part funded by the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority. Established by the European Union, the European Regional Development Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations.
