UCA Innovation Hub

UCA Innovation Hub

Working with Business and the Creative Industry

The Innovation HUB (UCAiHUB) drives Knowledge Exchange (KE) initiatives for UCA within an inclusive environment that inspires our students, graduates, and staff to bring a step change to the arts, technologies, and business for the creative industries.

Our overarching goal is to bring academia together through communities, organisations and businesses so that ideas and expertise can be exchanged.

The UCAiHUB facilitates collaborative KE initiatives in the following ways:

  • Funding exploratory projects for collaborating with industry partners.
  • Collaborate with talented researchers and experts on ground-breaking research and development, with funding from Innovate UK.
  • Connect businesses with our values-led and work-ready students.
  • Facilitate industry-sponsored PhD studentship.
