New £500,000 Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture
The call for applications follows a scoping exercise with the sector to determine the areas and themes of most importance

Arts Council England, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) have announced a new £500,000 Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture. The call for applications follows a scoping exercise with the sector to determine the areas and themes of most importance. This exercise revealed several themes that the sector is keen to explore and proposals are sought in the following six areas: user-generated content and social media; distribution; mobile, location and games; data; resources; and education and learning.

It is hoped that the research and development projects supported by the Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture will have the potential to produce new data and research insights that can be shared with and benefit other organisations in the arts, museums and galleries and libraries sectors.

Organisations that are eligible to apply to the programme include visual and performing arts organisations, cultural organisations in England including arts and cultural archives, literary organisations, museums and galleries, libraries, commercial arts and cultural organisations and creative industry businesses (where the funded activity is self-contained and has a clear benefit to the public).
