PROCESS

 

DCC Beta is the innovation ecosystem, and provides a platform through which a number of individual “Beta Projects” can be delivered

Beta Projects act as trials and experiments and address key issues that the council is seeking to understand before implementing on a city-wide scale. 

(Taking an iceberg analogy, 'Beta Projects' would be represented by visible but smaller portion above water, whereas 'DCC Beta' would be the large portion below the waterline.)

This section provides you with more detail on both of these aspects.
