REACT Report

The REACT Report distils our learning from the four year project, and celebrates the great potential of collaboration between universities and the creative sector. 

It offers valuable insight to policymakers, stakeholders in the arts, higher education institutions (HEIs), and the creative economy – highlighting the pivotal role that HEIs can play in in the growth of multidisciplinary regional hubs.

It outlines and suggests implementing a more holistic approach in order to understand cross-sector collaboration more effectively, and argues for a range of inputs to ensure partnerships work smoothly, knowledge can be shared equally, and creative innovation can thrive.
