Call for Applications: Using Heritage & Education Centre digital collections

Make use of our digital heritage resources

Our Heritage & Education Centre (HEC) are encouraging ideas that use our digital resources. You could create interactive media to present our heritage data in exciting ways (like Numbers game: The artists making waves with big data), or develop data analytic and linguistic tools. From genealogy, maps and visual media to ship and yacht building, trade routes and safety at sea – we want people worldwide to search and interrogate the rich content of the archive in new ways.

We are in the process of making 1.25 million ship plans and survey reports more accessible to the public online. Our website also holds digitised collections of the World Fleet Statistics and Casualty Returns as well as Lists of Surveyors and the Register of Ships. Find out more about this Small Grants Call and our work here.

The closing date for this application is 31 December 2019. We plan to implement the following review deadlines throughout 2019.
