BU is a member of the recently-formed Coastal Creatives Consortium (see below) to explore and promote academic-industry collaborations in the south coast digital creative sector, and to this end, we post the following invitation to participate in a survey which is aimed ultimately at benefitting such collaborations and the communities they service in the region. If your research involves partnering with the digital creative industry, please disseminate the invitation below to your industry connections. The survey can be found in a link on the project website (URL below). Thank you!
Do you work in the digital creative industries around Bournemouth, Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester, Chichester or the Isle of Wight? Please take 5 minutes to help with our research on potential relationships and collaborations with universities in the South-Central region.
We are inviting you to participate in an online survey for the Coastal Creatives consortium of regional universities (Bournemouth, Bournemouth Arts, Chichester, Portsmouth, Southampton and Southampton Solent). The consortium’s mission is to conduct research into the South-Central region’s digital creative industries and to assess the demand for industry-university collaborative research, development and educational needs and funding. This project is run from the University of Southampton and participation is voluntary.
The research question is: What kinds of research collaboration and partnerships (if any) would regional digital creative industries like to establish with local universities?
