Funded SME Internship scheme with European Safety Bureau

Sandeep Sharma, who is currently completing a Master’s degree in Advanced Computer Science with Industry at the University of Leicester, has successfully completed a graduate internship with the European Safety Bureau (ESB), helping to develop an online food management system.

The role of the internship at ESB, an independent food safety, health & safety and fire safety consultancy based at Woodhouse Eaves in Leicestershire, was to support the development of their Navitas online food management system.

Sandeep had a lead role in the development of the software as he designed and coded the system which ultimately drives the whole initiative. The powerful web-app Navitas, monitors fridge and freezer temperatures, interrogates probe temperatures and can be used to generate cleaning schedules and other food safety related tasks.

The collaboration between the University of Leicester and the European Safety Bureau was initiated through the Innovation Partnerships project. This scheme is part-funded through the European Regional Development fund and is aimed at engaging with SMEs to enable them to develop and implement innovative business solutions.
