Two calls for Expressions of Interest: Rural Tourism & Disruptive Innovation

posted Jun 11, 2012, 9:49 AM by

  1. Rural Tourism Innovation Projects "Providing information services to tourists exploring rural areas; Supporting the diaspora to visit/learn more about Scottish ancestry; ‘Gamifying’ the connections between people, places and historical records." Closing date for EoIs: 6 July
  2. £40k Disruptive Innovation Challenge "Finding a way to harness ideas from computing science and informatics research and digital technologies, to create disruptive new tourism products or services." Closing date for EoIs: 27 July
Some project ideas might fit under either call. To decide which is best we suggest:

a) If your idea is relevant to rural tourism, but doesn't particularly promise "disruption", submit to Call 1.
b) If your idea is both disruptive and relevant to the rural, submit to Call 1.
c) If your idea is disruptive but doesn't have much to do with rural tourism per se , submit to Call 2.
d) If your idea is neither disruptive nor rural, don't panic - there will be another call for full proposals, later in the year.
