Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy
The AHRC has formally launched its new four year initiative, ‘Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy’.
Representing an investment by the AHRC of £16m, the AHRC KE Hubs present a unique opportunity for Research Organisations to work in partnership with creative businesses and cultural organisations to strengthen and diversify their collaborative research activities, build new partnerships in the creative economy and increase the number of arts and humanities researchers engaged in research-based knowledge exchange.
The recent launch event which took place in London, saw keynote speeches from Sir Adrian Smith, Director General, Knowledge and Innovation, Department of Business, Industry and Skills (BIS) and the AHRC’s Chief Executive, Professor Rick Rylance.
In the film, which was recorded at the launch event, we hear from the Hub Directors from the four lead institutions; University of Lancaster, University of Dundee; Queen Mary, University of London, and University of the West of England, who explain what is unique about their Hub and give examples who their Hub will be engaging with.
