The United Kingdom’s government Introduces the “Border Innovation Hub” as part of the Roadmap for Technology and Innovation

This hub consolidates data from across government in order to assist industry in developing the tools necessary to innovate at the border.

This hub provides access to border-related Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that enable businesses to interface their solutions with government systems.

This hub will be updated with opportunities for industry to participate in pilot programmes and submit proposals for government contracts.

The following are some of the roadmap’s important components:

  • Establish a visible initial point of contact for border innovation vendors and users within the UK government.

  • Define target use cases in collaboration with industry

  • Establish and compile standards for security and interoperability

  • Collaborate across government to design the border and to foster innovation and adoption of border technologies.
