Serve to shape and transform
The Cultural Institute’s Innovation programme serves to shape and transform by facilitating and supporting the trialling and testing of new research-based ideas, developed by King’s academics in collaboration with cultural sector partners. Our aim is to help ensure that King’s expertise informs cultural sector policies, practices and creative production, ensuring that the full benefits of the university’s research are realised across the cultural sector.
- Provides leadership in identifying key challenges and opportunities within the cultural sector that may be addressed through King’s research
- Directs, shapes and supports collaborations that respond to those challenges and opportunities through a series of practical experiments
- Shares new applications and outcomes arising from our Innovation projects with the cultural sector to promote academic impact.
