Comunian R. and A. Gilmore (2015) Beyond the Creative Campus: Reflections on the evolving relationship between higher education and the creative economy, published by King’s College London, London (UK) available atwww.creative-campus.org.uk
The research network was set with four main objectives:
"Beyond the Campus: Connecting Knowledge and Creative Practice Communities Across Higher Education and the Creative Economy".
- Compile a literature review of existing research which aims to address the role of knowledge exchange and collaboration across academia and the creative and cultural sector;
- Develop an open knowledge platform which acts as point to reference in the work of academics and practitioners in this areas, with case studies and interviews, links, working papers and policy briefings;
- Through systematic analysis (final report), develop a clearer articulation of the relationship between A&H teaching and research and the creative economy, based on data collected through the project, interviews and seminar presentations;
- Explore international perspectives on the ‘creative campus’, and in particular the Australian context, in order to understand different approaches and opportunities coming from outside UK.
