Innovate UK (IUK) have announced their Creative Catalyst 2023 Competition.
Creative Catalyst 2023 will fund business innovation within the creative industries by providing a package of targeted and continuous support to help businesses grow.
IUK is encouraging proposals that can demonstrate benefit to the wider creative industries subsector or regional cluster – for example, projects that:
- Support the fashion and textiles sector’s transition to a circular model.
- Improve transparency and accountability across the online advertising supply chain.
- Create new revenue streams and fan engagement activities in the music sector.
- Demonstrate how advanced digital technologies, including metaverse, blockchain and AI, can transform the publishing sector.
To lead a project, applicants must be UK-based micro or small businesses (SME) from the creative industries or support the creative industries.
Up to £10 million had been allocated to fund innovation projects in this competition, which will award grants of up to £50,000.
Projects must start by 1 June 2023, end by 30 November 2023 and last between 3-6 months.
Entries open on Monday, 5th December 2022 until Wednesday, 15th February 2023.
