ISCF Audience of the Future Workshops

On 27th November 2017, BEIS published the "Industrial Strategy - Building a Britain fit for the future” White Paper. The Industrial Strategy includes a number of valuable opportunities for the Creative Industries including a proposed £33m challenge fund for Audience of the Future.

The business case for the challenge is currently being finalised. Should the business case receive approval, the expectation will be for the funding to become available in Spring 2018.

This programme of workshops, organised by KTN / Immerse UK on behalf of Innovate UK and the Research Councils, presents an opportunity for delegates to learn more about the proposed Audience of the Future programme, as well as a chance to meet other businesses, researchers, etc. and build new collaborations. Feedback gathered will inform and influence grant-funding opportunities.

Places are strictly limited. Successful applicants will be informed by 22nd January. Find out more and register for workshops in:
