    NESTA - Sharelab Scotland (New Fund)

    New fund will help identify and support projects that use online matching to help individuals and communities make better use of local resources, and that will help to create a fairer Scotland. 

    The Scottish Government is partnering with Nesta to help early stage projects develop collaborative digital platforms that use online matching to help individuals and communities make better use of local resources, and that will help to create a fairer Scotland. They are looking for bold and ambitious projects that demonstrate how Scotland’s citizens can engage with new and innovative ways to meet energy and transport needs; or to sustainably share goods and services, community assets and resources to benefit vulnerable consumers. The collaborative digital platforms will be web-based digital matching or exchange platform that helps to unlock idle or underused resources (such as objects, skills, money and/or people) by matching ‘haves’ with ‘wants’ in ways that enable greater efficiency and ease of access.
