All about identifying tools and techniques that can work for the sector.

Each project should start with a hypothesis (see and and expect projects to look at proving/exploring the hypothesis.

Expect project to release datasets using an open licence wherever possible – but to be clear about any legal or moral problems with this within the bid.
