Briefing around £2.5M Hyperlocal media funding hosted by Technology Strategy Board & Nesta



The Technology Strategy Board will be running a briefing event in partnership with Nesta around a new collaborative R&D funding competition for the digital and creative industries opening in November 2013:

Destination Local – £2.5M

The Technology Strategy Board and Nesta have worked together to develop the Hyperlocal Media for collaborative research and development of information, news and commerical services for geographical communities. The aim of the £2.5m competition will be to invest in several significant projects across the UK. A mix of project ideas that target rural and urban areas are anticipated, but all are intended to develop the kinds of enabling technologies, platforms and services which build up the businesses of the future and help the UK to become a world-centre for hyperlocal media.
