£1.8m Competition for 'Convergence in a Digital Landscape' Feasibility Projects

The Technology Strategy Board is to invest up to £1.8m in feasibility projects that address the converged nature of the digital landscape.

The programme will be delivered in three parts during 2012. They are seeking projects that focus on convergence in hyper-local media models, content origination tools, and analytical feedback and metrics tools. Challenge 1 opens on April 23rd and encourages innovative, hyper-local cross-media platforms and enabling technologies that will drive new service offerings, reach out into communities and provide conduits for public services.

Challenge 2 focuses on projects that will lead to true cross-platform origination of content, the collaborative generation of ideas, and new business models for content based on cross-media formats and consumption.

Challenge 3 seeks projects that investigate the potential of cross-platform analytical metrics and feedback tools to help content producers better understand the consumption of their products in a converged digital landscape.

Projects must be business-led and are open to small and micro companies working either singly or in collaboration with one another. Academics can apply, but only as part of a consortium.

An optional briefing event for the three-part programme will be held in London on 2 May 2012.
