The Make:IT:Happen Fund invested over £450,000 in strategic digital development to Scotland’s creative industries organisations for investment to capitalise on opportunities presented by digital technologies. The Make:IT:Happen fund was part of AmbITion Scotland, and was created to help Scottish organisations to undertake digital transformation journeys in order to grow business capability, capacity, creativity and confidence in becoming digital by default.

Partnerships with Scotland’s Higher Education Institutions are still available to creative industries organisations through Interface. This opportunity is designed to help creative businesses work with Scotland’s academic community, to ensure that the best research and development and innovation projects from the creative sector are supported and enhanced, for free. Partnerships with Scottish Universities’ academic departments can align a professional academic expert or researcher to your digital development project. Contact Interface direct.
