Two research projects led by PhD students at the Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries have won financial support from the King’s Cultural Institute’s Collaborative Innovation Scheme.
Toby Bennett will be working in collaboration with UK Music to improve awareness of shared challenges and mutual communications between education and the music industry. For more about UK Music, see: http://www.ukmusic.org/skills-academy/
Michal Ben-David will be working on innovation workshops for TV executives. The workshops will explore with managers the nature of creativity and innovation, together with the inherent tension between creativity/freedom and management/control.
The Collaborative Innovation Scheme for Early Career Researchers provides early career researchers and PhD students from across King’s with the opportunity to develop a collaborative and innovative project with a cultural sector or industry partner. Toby and Michal are both supervised by CMCI academic Dr Nick Wilson, and each is now funded with £1,000 for their projects to run between 1 August and 31 December 2014.
Congratulations to Toby, Michal and Nick.
