BBC Innovation Labs 2008

The Innovation Labs are a series of creative workshops for interdisciplinary teams of professional creative technologists, application designers, software developers and interactive media designers, working across both Future Media & Vision platforms.

We are inviting independent companies from across England, Scotland and Wales to pitch ideas in response to briefs set by New Media & Vision commissioners across the BBC.

Up to 10 projects in each of four regions - Scotland, North East England, North West England, and Wales & West Midlands - will then be selected to attend a 5-day long Lab. During the Lab, they will work with BBC commissioners and other mentors to develop the idea and prepare a final pitch. On the last day of the Lab, the ideas are pitched to the BBC commissioners for further development funding.

The funding will be agreed at the lab and ranges from a 'we'd love to talk to you some more - 2.5k' all the way to 'go build it, how much will it cost us?'. You'll know exactly what you're getting at the end of each lab.

The Liverpool launch day is Monday, November 12, 2007 11:00 am - 4:00 pm - register your attendance at
