About research

The Digital R&D Fund is exploring the role of digital technology and R&D practice in the arts

As well as funding individual R&D projects, the programme conducts cross-cutting research and analysis.

On this page you can access research commissioned by the programme, including ‘Digital Culture: How arts and cultural organisations in England use technology’ and ‘Arts R&D defined’.

In the coming months we'll be sharing insight about the programme itself, to share with those interested in new funding models.

Further down the page, you can download R&D reports from all of the programme’s funded projects. Visit the 'Projects' section in the toolbar to find out more about each project.
