CREATe is delighted to announce Naomi Korn as an Industry Fellow. The Industry Fellows scheme was established to further develop and deepen connections with industrial partners and stakeholders.

Naomi said: “I’m thrilled to have been appointed a CREATe Industry Fellow. I am a great fan of the work of CREATe in raising the level of awareness and engagement with copyright. I’m looking forward to working with CREATe in producing practical information for museums about the impact of copyright on their activities”.
