Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds enormous possibilities for the construction industry, including enhancing productivity and competitiveness. However, adopting AI technology can be challenging. Bridge AI is a new government-backed programme that aims to help businesses in high potential growth sectors, such as construction, to harness the power of AI. The programme offers funding and support to help innovators assess and implement trusted AI solutions, connect with AI experts and elevate their AI leadership skills.

Application is open to businesses of any size, academic institutions, charity and public sectors and can be submitted as a single entity, or as an R&D collaboration.
