Our funded projects
We work closely with private, public and third sector partners, as well as other universities and educational institutions, to develop innovative solutions to real-world challenges, and build new innovation capacity within these organisations.
Applying our knowledge in these ways, also helps to inform and advance our curriculum, identifying new approaches and generating knowledge capable of advancing and transforming the creative economy.
Our projects have received national and international funding from public bodies in the UK and the EU, including:
- Research England
- Office for Students (OfS)
- UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)
- Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships
- European Regional Development Fund
- British Council
