  • Scottish Government launches Healthier Lives Data Fund

    Created: 29/11/2018

    The Healthier Lives Data Fund is launched today - a new fund in partnership with the Scottish Government that will invest in and support innovative digital technologies that make data available and useful to citizens to help them lead healthier, and more independent, lives.

    They are looking for bold and ambitious people-facing projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to empowering Scottish citizens with data and information, and develop and showcase the potential of a new generation of data-driven, people-facing digital technology.

    The fund will support projects with grants of up to £30,000 and dedicated support from Nesta and the Scottish Government.

    Deadline for expression of interest is 10.00am 14 December 2018.

    More information on the fund can be found on the Healthier Lives Data Fund page and also in the launch blog. Organisations interested in finding out more can visit the Nesta website or get in touch with us at [email protected].
