Creativeworks London Researcher-In-Residence Round Four: Awards Announced

We are delighted to announce that Creativeworks London have awarded the fourth and final round of our Researcher-In-Residence Scheme.

Creativeworks London’s Universities have large numbers of highly motivated, entrepreneurial PhD students and early career academic researchers who have the skills that creative businesses need.

This scheme invited businesses to identify their requirements for support and expertise. Through events, Creativeworks London’s Knowledge Exchange team arranged for a careful match with an appropriate Doctoral student or early career academic researcher who will now be paid to work for the company for a three to four month period.

The awards have gone to seven, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and will support London’s businesses and academics in developing projects to ultimately have a positive effect on London’s Creative Economy.

We would like to congratulate:

Awardees: Ben Uri Gallery & Museum Limited and Lily Ford from Birkbeck University of London
