Established in 2018, the South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) aimed to develop a new, networked model of Knowledge Exchange for creative technologies and innovation; harnessing expertise across the South West region to deliver a series of interdisciplinary research and development programmes that would grow the capabilities and connections between the participating HEI and industry partners. The project’s focus on creative technology fused together arts, design, computer sciences, engineering and business development to deliver innovative new products, services and experiences.
Although now finished (view the final report) the scope for collaboration between health and the arts and creative networks is immense (see the
ICONIC and GOALD projects). For more information on current work in the Arts contact Professor Mike Phillips.
