Through academic support, one-to-one mentoring and consultancy, and themed collaboration and knowledge exchange events, creative and digital SMEs are able to explore how they can achieve a sustainable future in the Tees Valley.
The project is part of the wider Creative Fuse North East initiative, which is a unique partnership between the North East’s five universities including Teesside, Newcastle, Durham, Northumbria and Sunderland.
Its overall aim is to unlock the potential of the creative, cultural and digital sectors to drive innovation and growth, working with businesses and practitioners to develop their creativity and innovation capacity, encouraging growth and developing resilience. Creative Fuse North East has successfully secured funding for a second phase, having previously ran between 2016-2019.
Learn alongside innovators from the creative, digital and IT sectors at the Creative Fuse Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange events. With a different theme and expert speakers each event, attendees can take part in explorative discussions, stimulate new ideas, talk through challenges and keeping with its name, tuck into a delicious slide of cake!
