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 Round 6 Challenge Holders are open now and close on Wednesday 3rd November at 5pm.
If you are interested in applying, come along to our online Challenge Discovery Workshop at 10am on Tuesday 5th October, to discuss your application ideas with the Creative Informatics team. Register Now!
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.
