A CONTEST has been launched to develop a mobile app to help the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) to keep track of issues in the livestock industry.

The agency is looking for an app which can help it keep on top of information and meet its remit to protect public health and control any disease outbreaks.

The AHVLA believes this can best be done by developing effective mobile applications.

Funding towards development costs of up to £20,000 is being made available, with a maximum single award of £10,000 up for grabs.

AHVLA chief information officer Julie Pierce said: “Through making seed funding available, we are looking to exploit our information and systems more effectively.”

The competition closes on March 8.
