Nesta, the UK’s innovation foundation, is currently running the ‘Hands Off My Bike!’ challenge prize, which calls on people from all over the UK to come up with breakthrough innovations to make it more difficult to steal bikes and have the potential to increase numbers of people cycling in the UK.
The winning innovation will be the one that requires the longest time to steal the bike. The innovation will also be judged on the impact on the environment, cost and potential for commercialisation and/or implementation at scale.
There’s a £50,000 prize for the winning entry and it’s open to any individual or organisation. Closing date for entries: 18th January 2013.
