Technology Strategy Board – potential sources of funding

by Justin Souter on June 3, 2010


Last week I attended a presentation by the Technology Strategy Board about two competitions they are running. It was the morning before Thinking Digital, and included an enjoyable presentation by Ewan McIntosh (more details at Partnering for Innovation: NoTosh helping launch £18m digital fund).

I thought it would be useful to reproduce the related material here, for those of you out there looking for start-up funding etc.

The following is a copy-and-paste of an e-mail from Sian Brereton – Lead Technologist, Creative Industries – at the Technology Strategy Board (btw I have checked with Sian that it’s ok to publish this info):

Please find attached details of two competitions for grant funding that have just been launched which may be of interest to your organisations:

1) £18m – Collaboration across Digital Industries (Opens 14th June for fasttrack projects and 12th July for larger projects)

2)  £5m – Metadata: Increasing the Value of Digital Content (Opens 13th September)

Application is by dedicated application form. Further information on how to apply and guidelines for completing the application form can be found at

The Creative Industries KTN is running a series of events to assist with building partnerships and projects associated with these competitions. For more information please go to

Hope this is all helpful! :-)
