unprecedented response with over 65 bids submitted
Since the programme was announced over 1,800 people attended a series of nationwide briefings and bid workshops. 65 consortiums have expressed an interest in hosting an R&D partnership.


The Creative Industries Clusters Programme will see a record £80m-plus invested to help catalyse economic growth and provide the skills needed for the jobs of the future. The programme has generated a huge response with 65 consortiums submitting a ‘statement of intent’.

A full list of bidders (who have opted to share their details) is also available, providing an opportunity for industry and non-academic partners to collaborate in the proposed clusters.

This Creative Clusters Bids Infographic (PDF version) summarises the bids by region and lists the lead institution for each bid where permission was given to share details.
