Scottish Government and Nesta launch the Healthier Lives Data Fund.

Grants of up to £30,000 over nine months are available for bold and ambitious people-facing projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to empowering Scottish citizens with data and information, and develop and showcase the potential of a new generation of data-driven, people-facing digital technology.

Successful projects will benefit from Nesta's direct advice and support, including user-centered design and project delivery, as well as Nesta's wider network of partners and expertise.

The Scottish Government will also provide support, for example on accessing data and information governance.

Grantees will also benefit from being part of a Scottish peer group which will help shape how Scotland grows its data economy.

Nesta provides more information, including timelines and how to apply
