CreativeNet

CreativeNet was developed for University of Nottingham using data from a research project undertaken by the Graduate School in partnership with the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS). The aims of the original data collection were threefold: to map current relationships between the University of Nottingham and the Creative Industries, to input into a new strategy for the Creative Economy, and to look at the skill needs of the Creative Industries with a view to enhancing existing researcher training to meet these needs.

The web-based CreativeNet tool visualises data representing current relationships between University researchers and Creative Industry partners, while also allowing the viewer to navigate and explore the network to get a sense of how the University’s links are distributed across the different internal departments and external industry sectors.

CreativeNet is currently available for all University of Nottingham staff to access, edit and add to via the University’s intranet.
