Creative Horizon Projects

Creative Horizon Projects are aimed at interdisciplinary teams of academic and industry partners. Up to £25,000 of funding is available for projects that explore the potential of emerging technologies to create new technical and business opportunities for the creative industries in Edinburgh and South East Scotland.

Creative Horizon Projects should be high risk/high gain in nature, bringing academics and industry together with the aim of breaking new ground and establishing how technology could benefit the creative industries in the future. The findings of Creative Horizon Projects will be shared with Edinburgh’s wider creative community.
