Abertay University Prototype Fund
Abertay University in Scotland has announced that 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 aim is to foster economic growth, facilitate job creation, and improve skills development in the sector. Larger companies can also get involved in a commissioning role, providing an attractive route-to-market for a grant-funded smaller company. The grants are to be used to develop prototypes of original intellectual property, allowing companies to go on to seek further funding or investment to launch their product.
Companies able to work in Dundee are eligible to use the prototyping studio located at Abertay University, where industry-standard equipment and software will be made available. Talented graduates and students will be provided with paid work experience on grant funded projects. The closing date for applications to this round will be Wednesday the 14th of December 2011….
