For those of you who were unlucky enough to miss the 2006
labs, they are pioneering events that bring BBC Commissioners
and regional digital media companies together to develop and
commission innovative new products and services for the BBC.
Digital media companies based in the North West, North East,
East Midlands and Yorkshire are being invited to pitch ideas in
response to a series of new briefs from BBC commissioners.
Ten companies will be selected to attend a weeklong
residential Innovation Lab, where they will work with the BBC
and other industry experts to develop their ideas into
prototypes. The Labs will conclude with an opportunity to pitch
the developed ideas to BBC commissioners, who will offer
commissions to the best ideas at each Lab.
The process will kick off with a series of 4 launch events
across the north of England, one in each of the 4 partner
regions. Attending companies will learn more about this years
briefs, the BBC's new media strategy and technological
infrastructure and have an opportunity to meet BBC commissioners
and ask questions about the kind of projects they are looking
The events will run from 12 till 5.30pm on the following
