Creative and Digital Economy: A New Fusion

30 March 2012 13:00 – 17:00pm

National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts (NESTA)

1 Plough Place London EC4A 1DE


This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners, entrepreneurs and businesses from creative and ICT backgrounds to explore new approaches to innovation in the emerging digital ecology that might lead to new forms of economic dynamism. It will look at different paths towards innovation pursued in domains with different academic, professional and industrial cultures, and take up key questions about how and why creative and ICT skill sets and approaches to research and development might be brought together. It will consider whether by combining the theory and practice of innovation from different disciplines, there is greater potential for disruptive innovation.

The workshop will address this central question:

How can creative and ICT sectors produce new fusions of expertise and innovation to harness all these opportunities?

Speakers include Frank Boyd (Creative Industries KTN), Prof. Gillian Youngs (University of Wales, Newport), Hasan Bakshi (NESTA/Creative Industries KTN), Prof. David Gauntlett (University of Westminster), and Alfredo Cramerotti as part of the ” Creative and Digital Ideas Panel” chaired by Gillian Youngs at 15.30 hrs.
