On 7 June 2011 Arts Council England, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) announced a new £500,000 Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture pilot programme, for projects that harness digital technologies to connect with wider audiences and explore new ways of working.

The programme preceeded the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts programme which launched on 13 July 2012.  

Arts and cultural organisations are asked to work with those with digital expertise to help them understand the potential offered by new technologies and together develop innovative project proposals for submission to this new research fund.
