Digital Challenge

13 March 2007

Not on the Connecting Bristol site yet, but we weren’t successful in the bid. Sunderland was announced as the winner, with Manchester getting an honourable mention.

Consolation prize was the announcement of additional funding for the other 9 bids to develop some ideas, I didn’t quite catch the details but I think it was £2m + £500k plus possibly some additional money. All of which is good news, and interestingly the announcement is for the Digital Challenge 2007: so will there be a Digital Challenge 2008, Digital Challenge 2009…

Of course Bristol will be doing a lot of what is in our bid, just a bit slower and smaller.

Update – several posts announcing the announcement, the post-announcement meeting, and the emerging discussion on what to do next.
