Challenge Projects offer an opportunity for creative and cultural organisations to bring forward challenges relating to their work that require innovative, data-driven solutions.
Challenge Respondents – Apply Now!
Applications for Round 4 Challenge Respondents are open now and close at 5pm on Friday 16th April 2021. You can view briefs for all our Round 4 Challenge Projects below.
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.
Open calls for Challenge Project applications will happen twice a year in April and October. The application and awarding process for Challenge Projects involves two separate selection processes:
Selection of up to 5 appropriate challenges to take forward.
Selection of an appropriate response to each selected challenge to take forward and fund.
A selection panel will be put in place for both selection processes, with Challenge Holders forming part of the panel for the second phase of selection, where responses to their challenges are reviewed.
Applications open for Round 5 Challenge Projects.
Applications open for Round 6 Challenge Projects.
A data-driven approach to interactive fundraising.
