Accenture Turing strategic partnership: Expression of interest (modelling the Lloyd's of London insurance market)

Closing date

The finance and economics programme brings together a unique blend of world-class multi-disciplinary expertise, in order to enable a more inclusive and productive digital economy. Our vision is to foster financial innovation and to deepen our understanding of the economy for the benefit of society at large.

The partnership

In 2020 we launched a five-year strategic partnership with Accenture. This builds on an existing three-year alliance to create a world-leading strategic partnership in advanced data science, data analytics and AI research. Our focus is on delivering substantial business and societal value via: 

  • delivering value from AI and data
  • enabling safe and robust application of AI 
  • lowering barriers to AI adoption

Our partnership has several interconnected workstreams. This call falls under our use case commercialisation pillar where we work with Accenture and their clients to deliver shorter-scale research projects that have a direct impact on real-world use cases. In turn, researchers gain access to datasets and issues that would not be possible without collaboration with our commercial partners.

This call has been developed in collaboration with Accenture and Ki, the first digital algorithmically driven syndicate on the Lloyd's of London insurance market. Together, we want to model the complex commercial insurance market.

We have £150,000 to award through this call.
