South West Creative Technology Network

The South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) was a £6.6m project, funded by the Connecting Capability Fund, to link research to development by expanding the use of creative technologies, and supporting business growth across the south west region of the UK.

Running from 2018 to 2021, SWCTN supported research and development in emerging technologies and explored the themes of ImmersionAutomation and Data. The focus on creative technology brought together people from the arts, design, computer sciences, engineering and business development, to deliver new products and services. This network was led by us at Creative Economies Lab, UWE Bristol, in partnership with Watershed in Bristol, Kaleider in Exeter, Bath Spa University, The University of Plymouth, and Falmouth University.

The project was funded by Research England’s Connecting Capabilities Fund.
