On 23 January, Digital Catapult will launch the next MyWorld funding call offering £50,000 to address NVIDIA‘s industry challenge or an open challenge to develop new or existing digital tools to catalyse and connect production processes.
This Open Call is the first Challenge Call to come out of the MyWorld programme and is titled ‘Catalysts and Connectors: Tools for the Creative Industries.’
The theme looks to address workflows, the optimisation of existing tools and the production pipeline and processes. The call will highlight commercial industry-led challenges developed in partnership with industry partner NVIDIA, as well as an opportunity for companies to explore their own challenges, aiming to build prototypes that demonstrate clear advancements in technology and novel applications of existing tools. You can learn more on the call theme in the blog produced by Digital Catapult Lead Immersive Technologist, David Johnston.
