StoryLab is an open innovation event which funds prototype productions in immersive and next-generation storytelling, linking SMEs with university researchers and large scale organisations.
StoryFutures and Roald Dahl Marvellous Children’s Charity have come together to offer creative companies in the StoryFutures’ region the opportunity to collaborate on an Augmented or Mixed Reality R&D prototype to explore how immersive storytelling can improve ‘transition of care’.
Creative companies with experience of one of the following areas to take part in an exciting new Research & Development (R&D) collaboration:
- creative use of immersive storytelling
- use of immersive storytelling for health
- creative use of Artificial Intelligence
The initiative adopts a nurse-led approach to innovation in order to develop a prototype capable of supporting seriously ill young people across the UK when moving from child to adult services (referred to as ‘Transition of Care’ in the NHS).
On offer for the winning company is a £40,000 (incl. VAT) cash R&D production budget, supported by over £40,000 in-kind support from StoryFutures and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
The deadline to apply is midnight Sunday 29 November 2020.
