Challenge Projects offer an opportunity for creative and cultural organisations to bring forward challenges relating to their work that require innovative, data-driven solutions.
Applications for our Round 7 Challenge Projects are now closed. Our final round of Challenge Respondents will be announced in July 2022.
Potential applicants can come with unformed or semi-formed challenges that can be co-designed with our research team. Applications should respond to one of the following R&D priorities:
- Developing access to and engagement with new audiences and markets
- Developing new modalities of experience
- Unlocking the value of archives and data sets
- Exploring new business models for the creative industries
If you would like to discuss your ideas for a Challenge Holder application, contact the Creative Informatics team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Up to £20,000 is available to support successful research and development proposals that answer a Challenge Project. Respondents can be SME’s, teams or individuals that have the skills to answer one of the selected challenges, using data (from the Challenge Holder and/or from other sources) and data driven approaches and technologies.
