New preliminary report on KE hubs ‘Connecting to Innovate’

Creativeworks London are pleased to announce the release of “Connecting to Innovate”, a preliminary report on the achievements of the four AHRC funded Knowledge Exchange hubs for the Creative Economy: Creativeworks London, REACT, Design in Action  and The Creative Exchange.

This document is the first step in mapping the many and varied achievements of the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s four Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy, a programme that runs from 2012–2016.

The Hubs have been a remarkable experiment in academic collaboration with the creative economy. They represent an extraordinary journey where generosity, invention, and creativity have led the charge to make universities fit for business in the 21st Century.

This report is the first in a series exploring the many insights uncovered by the hubs. We are delighted to share this paper with a wider audience in the hope that others will be able to continue the work of culture change that we have begun.
