TALE has awarded over £75,000 in grant funding to SMEs to spend on their data projects.

The contributions will lever investment business cases with budgets totalling over £188,000 and are being spent on acquiring new software and recruiting new staff.

TALE is able to make a funding contribution of 40% of an individual company's project budget, and successful applicants were able to demonstrate benefits through the more effective use of data analytic tools and techniques.

The total grant budget available is £1,890,000 of EU funds - and is available on a first come first served basis, to a maximum of 150 companies.

Early grant applications were focused on the 'Transformation' Level, where the contribution goes towards a new logistics service as well as providing increased employment within the companies concerned.
