Nesta Launches EdTech Innovation Fund

| Return|

Nesta is working in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE) to help schools and colleges in England make more effective use of technology. The first stage of this £4.6m partnership is the EdTech Innovation Fund.

The EdTech Innovation Fund will support up to 20 organisations to improve, evaluate and grow the reach of digital tools across four challenge areas:

  • Formative assessment

  • Essay marking

  • Parental engagement

  • Timetabling.

Grants will be awarded to projects that support:

  • Improvement - improving and testing early-stage products that want to grow their reach and impact

  • Implementation - supporting products to expand their reach to more schools, colleges and students

  • Evidence - supporting organisations to build the evidence base for what works in the four challenge areas.

Applications must be submitted in the name of a corporate body which may include schools, charities or private companies.

Organisations can be from outside the UK, but products must be applicable to the English education system.

This fund will support up to 20 organisations with grants of up to £100,000 for a period of 18 months.

Applications should be submitted by the deadline 15 July 2019.
