Research collaboration funding awarded to develop protocol for apps using extended reality in gaming and heritage sector

A company based in England has been awarded funding through the Inward Investment Catalyst Fund after connecting on konfer, the NCUB’s digital innovation match-maker.


Launched by Interface and Scottish Government to support businesses not yet located in Scotland to work with Scottish academic institutions, the collaborative funding calls were shared with relevant businesses through konfer’s smart-matching technology.


Simul Software Ltd (England) responded, and through Interface were connected with the University of St Andrews, who together were awarded £10,000 to further develop their Teleport protocol for apps using extended reality in the cloud by testing the protocol in commercial gaming systems and the heritage sector.


Howell Davies, Interface’s Head of Strategic Programmes and Funding said: “I am delighted to see another round of strong applications which yielded five innovative projects marrying ambitious companies who value Scotland as a place of opportunity with the excellent academic expertise and facilities we have here. We were delighted with the help of konfer in extending the reach of this funding call.”
