Creativeworks London launch BOOST Award

Creativeworks London BOOST is a new follow on award that has been established to enable those businesses and researchers who have already benefited from Creativeworks London and London Creative and Digital Fusion support to develop and/or commercialise their ideas through an additional collaborative research project that benefits both the SME(s) involved and the Arts and Humanities research base in London.

Creativeworks London BOOST replaces the Creative Voucher Scheme in the final stages of the Creativeworks London project. Two competitive rounds of Creativeworks London BOOST will be offered on 3rd March 2015 and one in June 2015.

The teams must comprise a previously funded SME and their original researcher, and applicants can be from any of the Creativeworks London funding streams (Creative Vouchers, Creative Entrepreneur in Residence and Researcher in Residence). In addition the partnership may, if so desired, recruit one other business or researcher to work with them to deliver specialist areas of the project.

Those who have benefitted from London Digital Fusion support and also meet the Creativeworks London criteria are also eligible to apply. If you are unsure whether this applies to you, please contact the Creativeworks London team to check.

Applications must substantially build on the foundations laid with previous Creativeworks London support. BOOST funding is not to be used to start new projects or initiatives.

For more information please see the Creativeworks London BOOST guidelines. The Expression of Interest document can be found here.
