One of the priorities identified in the Technology Strategy Board's Creative Industries Technology Strategy report is developing skills, knowledge exchange and the cross-fertilisation of know-how between sectors. This Beacon Project will create a vision for how creative industries businesses can easily and successfully leverage the resources and ability of the knowledge base. Knowledge Transfer traditionally has its roots in the science and engineering sectors where new technologies have often been developed in universities and transferred to industry for commercialisation.
