It is with immense pleasure that we are announcing the launch of the DICE Digital R&D Fund on 1 December 2020.
The fund awards 20 grants for the development and delivery of 20 co-designed ‘digital experiences’ to serve as an immense contribution to the DICE programme’s mission.
The Fund aims to create a community of practice across the 20 partnerships to share learning from the digital learning experiences.
The value of each of these grants will range between £7,000 – £15,000 on the basis of the results.
The 20 grants will be awarded to 20 pairs of organisations which will later be called ‘DICE Digital Partners’. These organizations will co-design and co-deliver a digital experience.
