The second and final Collaborative Research and Development (CR&D) Open Call, led by Digital Catapult, will open for applications on 9 October 2023. The aim of this competition is to support business focused research and innovation in the creative industries in the West of England. Between £100,000 – £200,000 will be awarded to cross-disciplinary projects.
This event will bring together the CreaTech, industry and research communities including those from the academic partners in the project (University of Bristol, University of Bath, UWE, and Bath Spa University) and provide an opportunity to meet with representatives from the MyWorld project, Digital Catapult, and wider programme partners.
Anyone from industry, start-ups or academia looking to apply to the CR&D call, or those interested in finding out more about the MyWorld programme and its expected impact on the region over its five-year duration is encouraged to attend.
The MyWorld CR&D call is delivered by Innovate UK (IUK) using its Innovation Funding Service (IFS) platform. It will open on 9 October 2023, and close on 23 November 2023. Details of the call are available on the IFS site.
If you are unable to attend the in-person briefing event there is an online webinar, hosted by Innovate UK on 19 October at 14:00. Please register via Zoom.
