Knowledge Exchange Hubs, working as consortia, connect excellent research in the arts and humanities with a range of creative and cultural organisations to generate new and exciting knowledge exchange opportunities, foster entrepreneurial talent, and stimulate innovation and contribute to the development of the UK’s Creative Economy.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships support UK businesses wishing to improve their competitiveness, productivity, and performance. The Partnerships do this by accessing the knowledge and expertise available within UK universities and colleges.
The Follow-on Funding Scheme offers flexible funding to encourage creativity, accommodate risk, and promote innovative activities in support of knowledge exchange, public engagement, active dissemination, or commercialisation activities that have emerged during a current project - or are supplementary to a completed AHRC-funded project.
