Vienna | Immaterial Future Innovation Award open call

Immaterial Future association is calling for innovative solutions that make culture the driver of humanity's growth. The winner will receive a €50,000 non-equity funding  to be awarded during the ceremony at viennacontemporary art fair in September, 2021 in Vienna, Austria.

Immaterial Future (IF) association invites technological startups and projects from anywhere in the world to apply for IF Innovation Award.

We are looking for projects that leverage technology to address, directly or indirectly, at least one of the following challenges:

  1. Develop new business models that give culture financial independence.
  2. Develop distribution models that allow wide access to cultural experiences while upholding the authenticity of these experiences.

Open call invites proposals from technological startups, profit or non-profit organizations or academic world.

The Award was established by Immaterial Future association that aims to explore and develop a new approach to humanity's growth. This approach is to shift growth into the plane of immateriality, with culture as the main vector of change.

We intend to support projects that see an untapped potential in culture to facilitate this shift.

We launch IF Innovation Award where the best submission receives a prize of 50,000 euros. The Award will take place in Vienna, September 7, 2021, during the Immaterial Future Forum. The Forum itself is a parallel event to viennacontemporary art fair.

Six selected finalists will be invited to the Forum in Vienna to showcase their projects to potential partners and investors with a specific interest in culture and technology. Best submission will be selected after the showcase.

Deadline for proposals: 1 June 2021
