More than 1 Million Pounds Worth of Funding Available for Hyper Local Media projects

Join us at the Thistle Marble Arch, London for an information and networking event hosted by Creative Industries KTN around two new funding competitions for Hyper-local media projects available from the Technology Strategy Board and NESTA.

The Technology Strategy Board and NESTA have announced two complementary programmes worth over 1 million pounds for innovators working on next generation, hyper-local cross-media platforms and enabling technologies that will drive new service offerings, reach out into communities and provide conduits for public services. The joint programme is called Destination Local.

This session will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to learn more about the programme and how to apply to it.

Date: Wednesday, 02 May 2012

Venue: Thistle Marble Arch, Bryanston Street, London W1H 7EH

Time: 13:30 – 17:00



The Technology Strategy Board’s competition will explore the feasibility of cross media platforms and enabling technologies. Grant Offered for Proposals: £56,250 and 75% funding with total a project cost at £75K

NESTA is offering 10 organisations up to £50,000 to develop next generation of hyperlocal media services. In particular, they are looking for prototypes that make the most of mobile technologies to deliver geographically-relevant local media. NESTA’s goal in funding the prototypes is to understand what new business models may be required, what types of service work well with audiences and the challenges and opportunities of using mobile technologies. Successful applications will be able to demonstrate how they help to understand these themes
