Challenge description

The KTN-iX competition is supporting a large UK company to identify innovative solutions that enable full traceability of every component part in every product the company produce or use. Solutions should offer a secure and incorruptible (or tamper-evident) mechanism and be capable of being adopted by the existing supply chain, as well as being specified by use by future suppliers.

A solution is needed as soon as possible. However, for the right solution or offering, the challenge sponsor is happy to work with an early stage innovator or concept stage demonstrator.

The winning businesses in this competition will be given the opportunity to pitch to the challenge sponsor, and receive support from the KTN and Catapult networks.
