How can Arts and Humanities disciplines contribute to the growth, innovation and success of the creative economy? What makes for successful co-creation of research? What are the key factors that enable exciting and productive forms of knowledge exchange? What are the implications of this for cultural policy? Why should this matter to the UK research base and to SMEs in the creative economy? And what is the future for knowledge exchange between arts and humanities researchers and the creative economy in the UK and internationally?
To explore some answers to these questions, David Docherty, CEO of the National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB) will lead a discussion involving the Directors of the four AHRC-funded Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy: Creativeworks London (Morag Shiach), REACT (Jon Dovey), Design in Action (Michael Marra) and The Creative Exchange (Jeremy Myerson) as well as the Interim Chief Executive of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (Andrew Thompson).
