The Bristol+Bath Creative R+D is a first of a kind, £6.8 million collaboration between the region’s four universities - UWE, Bath Spa, the University of Bath and the University of Bristol - and digital creativity centre Watershed.

The programme aims to break down the doors, connecting the worlds of university research and creative business to collectively imagine and develop the future of the creative industries investing in prototypes that demonstrate the potential of new technologies and the future internet to expand and shape our understanding of Digital Placemaking and its role within the future Smart City, looking ahead to 2030.

Digital Placemaking aims to enhance and deepen the relationship between people and places, believing the best examples of digital placemaking are co-designed by different kinds of communities, using inclusive digital technology and creative solutions to improve or enhance the public experience of place.

 If you are interested in applying for up to 100k worth of funding or just want to find out more please head over to the Bristol+Bath Creative RD website.

You can also book a 1-to-1 to discuss the opportunity further with a Bristol+Bath Creative R+D Team Member here, surgereis will be held in both Bristol and Bath.
