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

Join us at the Wales Milliennium Centre in Cardiff for an information and networking event around two new funding competitions for Hyper-local media projects 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 is in partnership with the Welsh Government and will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to learn more about the programme and how to apply to it.

Date: Monday, 23 April 2012

Venue: Wales Millennium Centre, Bute Place, Cardiff Bay, CF10 5AL

Time: 12:30 – 16:30 (lunch served from 12:30 and event will start at 13:30)


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.
