Learning technologies – design for impact competition
The Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) are to invest up to £1.1m in exploratory studies into the design of technology-based products and services that will improve learning outcomes.
This SBRI competition seeks to stimulate business performance in an already vibrant education technology sector by supporting high-quality design of commercially viable products and services that can be delivered at scale while being affordable and easy to use.

The sessions will signpost companies to the forthcoming SBRI £1.1m Learning Technologies: Design for Impact competition and explore how co-design will engage educators and learners at a deeper level.
A session will be held at Millenium Point on 29 April 2014. Registration and networking will open from 1:00pm and the event will start at at 2.00pm. For more info and to confirm your place click here
