Open Innovation - Applying digital creativity across boundaries
Event details: 9th July 2014. 9.15-5.00. Wales Millennium Centre Cardiff
The event will explore how digital and creative processes can help innovation, and enhance business.
The themed event will engage with enterprises who may not identify themselves as creative, but which produce some creative outputs and will benefit from Knowledge Exchange opportunities with academics.
In doing so, the theme and outputs will respond to a distinct need from enterprises who are seeking to deliver their core products through digital modes and creative experiences.
Who should attend?
Event attendees will include businesses and organisations in sectors relating to the development and use of creative approaches to tourism, such as designers and users of creative products; and cross-cutting organisations within the tourism field. Companies could be based in the Gaming industry; Digital and Entertainment media, Film, video photography; Advertising companies, Design, Publishing, Software and electronic publishing, Television and radio, Music and visual and performing arts. Other attendees will also include established bodies such as CADW, National Museum Wales, Peoples Collection Wales, museums and Government. Academic attendees may come from a wide range of disciplines that relate to the theme including the Arts and Humanities, but also technological disciplines that could have innovative applications.
Outcomes from the day will include an opportunity for attendees to collaborate to bid for pilot project money from a £10,000 fund provided by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Proposals could have a number of formats including (but not limited to) proof of concept, small pilot projects, equipment grants, travel support, and projects that will help to facilitate an application for external funding for research. We will particularly encourage collaborative, multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary knowledge exchange activities.
