Sorry, this scheme is closed. If you need help please contact us

The Department of Culture, Arts & Leisure (DCAL) is the government lead on the creative industries. The Department secured funding for a pilot Creative Industries Innovation Fund (CIIF) for the period 2008-11. The fund was administered by the Arts Council and supported 133 business and 23 sectoral development projects.

DCAL is investing a further £4m over 2011-15 to continue to grow and develop the creative industries. This will include a refocused Creative Industries Innovation Fund (CIIF 2) which will provide support for innovative development of commercially viable content, products, services and experiences capable of competing in global markets.

CIIF 2 is administered by the Arts Council.
