Brexit Manifesto for Creative HE

First Consultation Roundtable:
Creative Research and Collaboration


Brexit presents many pressures and opportunities to the creative HE sector. Following our exclusive roundtable event in the House of Lords in November 2016 exploring these issues, we have now formed a partnership to take forward a full consultation leading to the publication of a Brexit Manifesto for creative HE to be launched at the House of Lords in September 2017. Download the full consultation programme here.

Roundtable 1: Creative Research and Collaboration

What is the role of creative research in driving the high-growth creative sector in the UK economy and as a global leader? This consultation is the first of three roundtables we are running across the UK in June and July. APDIG will produce an interim report from each of the consultations which will feed into the Brexit Manifesto which will be launched in the Houses of Parliament in September 2017.

This workshop will look into how Government and creative sector bodies can support creative research with EU and non-EU partners following Brexit including EU collaboration frameworks, global research opportunities and the commercialisation of research outcomes, including the way ahead for IP frameworks and the digital single market.
