What technologies are supported?
ACE IT removes financial barriers to immersive tech innovation, helping start-ups grow. Through the ACE IT programme, start-ups can access world-class consultancy and technical support in a number of areas:
Volumetric Capture & Scanning
Their support will help up and coming innovators to strategise and fast-track transformation of their immersive tech prototype into a new product, process or service. Start-ups can also access a range of immersive technology to experiment and test new ideas, without losing R&D budgets. For start-ups that already have a working prototype or MVP, ACE IT will help you access user and product testing, giving you the data you need to refine your product and get market-ready.
Support for innovation
ACE IT work across a broad range of immersive areas and enable successful applicants to increase their depth of understanding and ability to implement new ideas, technology and processes.
The project is a partnership between London South Bank University and London College of Communication, UAL. It is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
All applications must be received by 23:59 on Sunday 12 December. They will then be processed by the ACE IT team.
