The Lloyd’s Register Foundation, Heritage & Education Centre is inviting applications for grant funding to harness emerging technologies to develop its heritage and education resources.
The diversity of the Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s collection means that a variety of technologies could be used to further its educational reach and impact.
Technology start-ups, universities and data interrogation organisations can apply for a Digital Innovations grant. A total of £100,000 is available to cover the costs of appraising and using associated resources, from both HEC’s own collections and other collections worldwide – ensuring the technology or software could be used in an open source format for use by other relevant institutions.
Potential areas of interest include the development of optical character recognition that can accurately capture handwritten text, 3D printing and mapping, data visualisation and augmented reality.
The successful applicant will be required to develop the technology independently.
The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on the 28th February 2021.
