    Calling for technologists with big ideas, a competition is now open for a unique £3m funded R&D opportunity, investing in the creation of ideas.

Festival UK 2022 is a major UK-wide festival of creativity and innovation.  Taking place across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales throughout 2022, it will deliver a programme of ground-breaking large-scale new commissions with the ambition of reaching millions; bringing people together and promoting the UK’s creativity to the world. 

Launched on 9 September, the competition is now open for a unique £3m funded R&D opportunity, investing in the creation of ideas.  The competition is searching for the greatest minds and brightest talents drawn from the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, from across the UK to apply to form Creative Teams capable of developing major public engagement projects.  Ideas are not a requirement of the application process but Creative Teams must be able to demonstrate they have the skills and collaborators needed to meet a set of criteria against which they will be assessed.  

Interested parties from right across the UK can apply online now - https://www.festival2022.uk/   The competition is open until 16 October when 30 teams will be selected to receive development funding.  

10 winning commissions will be announced in 2021.

techUK members can join an open Q&A next Thursday at this link:

Thursday 24 September - 16:30 - 17:30 BST
