This week saw the launch of CREATe: no, not a singular version of our research consortium, but a new RCUK research centre for copyright and new business models in the creative economy. (There are only so many useful acronymns…)
The Centre includes university partners from Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh, and two of the CReATeS partners, Strathclyde and St Andrews) and England (UEA, Nottingham and Goldsmiths). It is funded by the AHRC, ESRC and EPSRC, and is ‘designed to help the UK cultural and creative industries thrive and become innovation leaders within the global digital economy’.
Our Principal Investigator Claire Squires attended the launch on 31st January and 1 February in Glasgow. More information about the Centre is available from its website.
