LiveCorp: Proof of concept trial for better flooring for animals during sea export – innovation challenge
- Innovators, solution providers and startups/scaleups/SME’s with commercial solutions ready for proof of concept in livestock export industry
- Mining, hospitality, industrial manufacturing or warehouse flooring suppliers.
A small percentage of cattle and sheep may incur leg or foot injuries while being loaded into trucks and ships, or during transport. An example of this may be when animals move at speed around a corner in the loading alleyways or lose their footing on surfaces with poor traction, potentially leading to a lower leg injury. Equally, heavier livestock standing on abrasive flooring for extended durations can contribute to lameness.
The Live Export Program (LEP) has engaged Impact Innovation to develop an Open Innovation Pipeline to allow multiple small-scale technology trials to satisfy the livestock export industry’s desire for practical and immediate solutions to common supply chain problems. The Innovation Pipeline enables the LEP RD&E Program to leverage existing technology solutions or provide an avenue to trial novel solutions and technology through short, sharp projects. The open innovation approach will ensure that technology solutions can be identified faster and trialled within industry sooner, compared to the traditional research process.
LiveCorp are seeking applications for proof-of-concept research project from innovators, solution providers and startups/scaleups/SME’s. ‘Visit website’ to find terms of reference (ToR) details. Responses to this ToR are expected to outline a three (3) month pilot project, or Proof of Concept (PoC) trial, that translates an existing solution to benefit the livestock export industry.
If the Proof of Concept (PoC) trial is successful, it may be selected to progress to a larger scale project, where appropriate.
