We are delighted to announce that Dr Oliver Cox, our Heritage Engagement Fellow, has been appointed an Industry Champion for the new AHRC/NESTA funded Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC). PEC provides independent research and authoritative recommendations to aid the development of policies for the UK's creative industries, contributing to their continued success.
The Centre engages considerably with industry, and the impressive network of industry champions help to guide the PEC on industry’s most pressing challenges, provide expert insight to inform the centre's research, and give critical feedback on their policy recommendations. The network Dr Cox will be joining has already made valuable contributions to the PEC's research and policy recommendations, including panel discussions both on the value of creative education, and on best practice for local growth in the creative industries.
