Set up by Act of Parliament in 1998, NESTA uses the interest on a National Lottery endowment to pioneer ways of supporting and promoting innovation and creativity across science, technology, the arts and learning. NESTA was created to invest at the highest point of risk, and offer individuals, groups and small businesses the time, space, money and support to push at the frontiers of knowledge and practice. It invests in a diverse range of people and projects including scientists, inventors, engineers, medical practitioners, educators, artists, writers, film-makers and musicians.
NESTA's investment means more than money. It gives people the time and flexibility they need to develop and grow - offering both funding and tailored support in the form of mentors, business expertise and specialist advice.
As an investor, NESTA is both creative and commercial in focus. But it doesn't expect guarantees or short-term success. NESTA embraces the ups and downs of experimentation and the creative process - and it views every project, whatever its outcome, as a learning experience for the next.
NESTA invests in projects at the earliest possible stage, yet is patient when it comes to returns. What's more, the returns it seeks are not purely financial; the cultural, social and scientific benefits can be equally important. And any financial returns that NESTA makes are invested back into its programmes. For further details, including how to apply, use the links below.
awards help museums, galleries, science and discovery centres breathe new
life into existing collections or exhibitions. This new offering within
the Learning Programme is open for application until 13 June.
Flipside Magazine is supported by NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts) , the organisation that invests in UK creativity and innovation.
