The Technology Strategy Board and Nesta have worked together to develop this £2.5m hyperlocal media funding programme for collaborative research and development of information, news and commercial services within geographical communities.
The competition is looking 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.
Competition opens: 4th November 2013.
Competition closes: 18th December 2013 (first stage application)
