New dates announced for Production Innovation for Immersive Content Competition Briefing Events
News from Innovate UK. Monday 1 October sees the launch of the next phase of the Audience of the Future Challenge, with a new £8m R&D fund, Production Innovation for Immersive Content.
To help you take advantage of this competition, there is a programme of briefing events that will take place around the UK throughout October. These are filling up fast.
The London morning event has sold out in just 5 days. Innovate UK has therefore organised a second session in London on the afternoon of the 18th October. Another new briefing event will take place in Newcastle on 8th November.
The Audience of the Future Challenge is designed to support the growth of the creative immersive tech sector through £33m of funding and investment. It aims to bring creative businesses, researchers and technologists together to create striking new experiences. It positions the UK as the global leader in the creative and commercial implementation of immersive technology.
The Production Innovation for Immersive Content challenge will provide up to £8m funding for business-led R&D projects. These enable immersive content to be created faster, more efficiently, or in new ways. They also significantly improve on the current ‘state-of-the-art’ in the field.
