New Funds Projects

Two funding calls (March 2014, December 2014) and one set of direct commissions (2015/16) were issued to support new research. The main objectives for these calls were to:

  • enable CREATe to support work which addressed research gaps in a fast moving field
  • facilitate the extension of successful work with an eye to accelerating impact
  • foster opportunities for interdisciplinary research collaborations

Proposals were invited from representatives of UK higher education organisations that are part of, or affiliated with, CREATe. This included staff from any of the seven consortium member Universities or from any of CREATe’s Associated Projects. Funding of more than £470,000 has been made available to support the following research projects which were awarded following a peer review process. They can be grouped into six themes:

Theme 1: Business Models

Theme 2: GLAM Sector & Openness

Theme 3: Creative Practice & Copyright

Theme 4: Regulation & Enforcement

Theme 5: Intermediaries, Platforms & Users

Theme 6: Public Interest
