Openmaker is open for applications

Make Liverpool

We wanted to let you know about a project called Open Maker. In short, Beautiful Ideas has 5 x €20K project grants and 10 x £1k development funds, to support projects that involve makers and manufactures. There is clearly more to it and we have attached a press release that contains more details. TLDR: If you make something, have something to prototype or a concept/system to trial – this is for you. Openmaker press release regional Oct 17

The urgent information is that the application process is already open – Beautiful Ideas are already working with individuals and groups to develop their submissions – and the window closes very soon, on the 18th of October. The application is short, but requires registering interest.

Next week – the 3rd of October 2017 – we are hosting an event at Sensor City as the final opportunity to come and hear from us about how to access the funds.

This fund is a pan European project and really is such an amazing opportunity for makers and manufactures to work together on project and be funded to do so.

Please help me pass on this opportunity to your network, friends and family. Beautiful Ideas is there to support those who have questions, need to find a manufacture to help, or whatever it takes to get someone to the point of applying for the development grant or the full fund.
