The Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP) is launching its first acceleration program in Industry 4.0.
We are looking for startups with an MVP or a market-proven solution to the challenges of Industry 4.0 and interested in establishing in the UAE and access the MENA market.
The finalists will have investment options in order to scale their project, and the winner will have a $100,000 prize (in the form of equity free grant cash, business incubation, market access and marketing).
Smart Construction Management
Software equipped with Big Data/AI technology that stores a vast amount of business & construction data to help automate operational & construction processes.
Materials designed to have controllable and adjustable properties depending on external stimulus such as stress, moisture, electric or magnetic fields, light, temperature, pH, or chemical compounds.
Solutions that allow sustainable architectural designs seeking to optimize natural resources and processes in buildings (selection of materials, proper use of space, ideal selection of the places…) to reduce the environmental damage.
Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers both anapproach and the application of processes towards a building's life-cycle environmentally responsible and resource-efficient.
Building Information Modelling
Tools involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places to save time and detect potential issues before they cause a problem.
Reducing costs, time and increasing flexibility through solutions based on 3D printing technologies to create highly detailed models and print life-size objects -or parts of them, that are difficult to produce.
Connected Infrastructures & Ecosystems
Solutions based on technologies to catch signals of upcoming threat of infrastructures. We are also looking for cross-sector solutions (e.g. mobility) to improve connection and cooperation along the construction value chain.
Modularization / Prefabrication
Solutions based on modular building to increase productivity, simplify logistics, minimize risks, help to decrease material waste and create less impact to the surrounding environment.
Internet of Things
Blockchain and Cyber security
Demand-driven supply chain
