Tower Hamlets grant/funding listings
Tower Hamlets are the local authority for the Hackspace and should have an interest in promoting local technology and infrastructure.
COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level.
"What does COST fund? The support will cover the costs of networking activities such as meetings (e.g. travel, subsistence, local organiser support), conferences, workshops, short-term scientific exchanges, training schools, publications and dissemination activities. COST does not fund the research itself."
"Nesta is an independent charity with a mission to help people and organisations bring great ideas to life.
We do this by providing investments and grants and mobilising research, networks and skills."
