Creativeworks London and TCCE mini-guide: Developing Effective Research Collaborations
Creativeworks London (CWL) and The Culture Capital Exchange have created this mini-guide, with the hope that it might be useful to people interested in undertaking, supporting or better understanding research collaborations. We hope therefore it will be useful to a range of different readers. These will include: academic researchers wanting to work with the cultural or creative sectors, artists and creative businesses seeking to collaborate with university research partners, funding bodies that may be planning to develop new funding streams to support collaborations into the future, policy-makers interested in the processes and practices of collaboration and brokerage, and knowledge exchange managers tasked with helping to support such activity within universities and other research institutions.
Since its launch in 2012, Creativeworks London has supported 109 research collaborations between academic partners and micro-businesses and SMEs in the arts, cultural and creative industries in London. In the process of doing so, we have developed considerable knowledge and know-how on what works and what doesn’t when it comes to developing collaborative projects.
Based on our experience, Creativeworks London and The Culture Capital Exchange have developed this mini-guide to provide some essential information, advice and brief case-studies for those who may be interested in developing their own collaborations into the future.
