The third cohort of Techies in Residence has kicked off with 9 projects addressing a range of social challenges across Northern Ireland.

There was a huge amount of interest for the third edition of Techies in Residence programme, from both social challenges being addressed to tech companies interested in working on the challenges.

Techies in Residence is a Social Innovation NI initiative funded by Building Change Trust and Comic Relief. Innovate NI has been appointed by Building Change Trust as Managing Agent for the Techies in Residence programme.

The 9 projects are:

  • Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre
  • Children’s Law Centre
  • Drake
  • Housing Rights
  • Mencap
  • Parenting NI
  • Shelter NI
  • uHub
  • Your Derry

Innovate NI will now be teaming up with each of these organisations to match them with Techies in order to fulfil the briefs. Keep an eye for more information on each of the projects.
