Abertay Digital Prototype Grant Funding - Launch of New Round (UK)
Abertay University’s business support office is providing grants of up to £25,000 for small companies (based anywhere in the UK) that are developing their own games or other forms of interactive digital content.
The grants can be used to develop prototypes of original intellectual property (IP), allowing companies to go on to seek further funding or investment to launch their product. As part of the programme's offering, studio space, equipment, and software will be available for companies to use while prototypes are being developed at Abertay University.
Games projects and other forms of interactive digital content, such as e-learning, visualisation, interactive exhibits, online film/broadcast media, or middleware can be supported.
Grants can be used for a range of expenditure identified within the project budget, primarily:
- Costs for a selected number of the applicant's development team.
- Part-time employment costs of a proportion of students or graduates selected as part of the student placement element.
- Additional costs, such as a contractor to fill a gap in the team.
The third 2012 round of the programme is now open with a deadline for the receipt of applications of 5pm on Wednesday 18 July 2012.
