Immersive content production innovation: event and funding

1 October 2018

Apply for a share of up to £8 million for research and development projects to create faster, more efficient immersive content

As part of the third wave of Audience of the Future Challenges, a new research and development (R&D) fund has opened for innovations in the production of immersive content.

The fund will provide up to £8 million for business-led R&D projects that enable immersive content to be created faster, more efficiently or in new ways, and which improve significantly on the current ‘state-of-the-art’ in the field.

The competition is open to all UK creative industry organisations working with immersive technologies.

Single company projects can receive up to £250,000, while collaborative projects up to £1 million. All proposals must involve at least one participant who is a content creator and develop tools, products or services for creating and delivering immersive content.

Competition closes on Wednesday 28 November 2018 at 12:00 noon.
