CI Inclusive Capital Funding Calls

CI Inclusive Capital Funding Calls

Creative Informatics was awarded additional funding by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (part of UK Research & Innovation) to support investment in capital projects (ie buildings and/or rent, facilities, technology, equipment, software and maintenance), which support the legacy of the project and help further the equality, diversity, and inclusion impact of creative data driven innovation in our region.

In spring 2023, we shared a number of funding calls for inclusive projects to make a real difference to diverse communities and enable new and more inclusive opportunities for creative innovation in Edinburgh and Southeast Scotland.

These included:

  • Creative Informatics Participant & Alumni Creative Tech Fund
  • Community Creative Tech Fund, in partnership with Creative Community Hubs
  • Creative Informatics Inclusive Innovation Working Spaces Fund – supporting professional accommodation for creative tech and data driven start-ups and SMEs in Edinburgh and Southeast Scotland

Applicants were encouraged to read more about our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion in our policy and action plan, which has informed our work and this specific set of funding calls.

The funding has also enabled investment in equipment that enables work with diverse communities, including support for Creative Edinburgh’s work with diverse creative communities, and acquisition of a body scanner housed at the University of Edinburgh which can be used in inclusive and innovative academic fashion/body tech research as well as industry collaborations and R&D.
