Nominet Trust announces its plans for the next phase of its development. Following several years of pioneering work and success in the ‘tech for good’ space, Nominet Trust has announced development plans that will maximise the impact of its grant funding, skills and resources.
Recognised as the UK’s leading ‘tech for good’ funder, Nominet Trust has developed a highly respected grants programme that combines funding with a proactive business support.
Nominet Trust’s investments, advocacy and cross-partnerships have all contributed to the development of a vibrant social technology sector in the UK. In order to build on this work and complement the Trust’s renewed focus on grant-giving, Nominet Trust has provided start-up funding to explore the potential of a new Centre focused on the acceleration of ‘tech for good’. In addition, the Trust is delighted that iDEA, the inspiring Digital Enterprise Award, founded with HRH The Duke of York in 2014, is to be established as an independent organisation, supported by a range of corporate and educational partners.
On Wednesday 21 January social enterprise EduKit unveiled its new education service to support time-poor teachers at the BETT; the world's leading learning technology event. more >
