MyWorld IDEAS Sandbox 1: Playable City – online information session
MyWorld is a UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Strength in Places funded programme that builds on the already globally recognised strength of the West of England region in creative technology. The first MyWorld IDEAS Sandbox is now open and delivery partner, Watershed, will commission and support six teams, each led by an SME, to take an experimental idea on the theme of the Playable City to a working prototype over three months. Each team will receive £45K.
There are two stages to the call. Stage 1 is an application for an expression of interest for attending an Ideas Lab at Watershed. The half-day Ideas Labs will run on Thursday 8 and Monday 12 September. In Stage 2, those who have attended an Ideas Lab are invited to apply for a prototype idea. The deadline for expressions of interest is 10:00, Friday 12 August. Deadline for stage 1 applications is Friday 19 August.
More information about the call is available on the MyWorld Website.
