New Horizons: Current Developments in Research Practice

"BIAD's Research Summer School is now in its third year, and has established itself as a popular annual event that introduces researchers to current trends and issues in research.

This year's programme will feature the latest developments in research practice and consider how they apply to research in art and design. It will cover new approaches, such as digital and video research, and issues of current interest around publishing, the Research Excellence Framework, and the impact of art and design research beyond academia–including how research operates in the real world.

There will be plenty of opportunity to debate, both with the speakers and with colleagues and fellow researchers, and the programme will include opportunities for networking."

Simon Roodhouse gauges the [UK] government's creative industries IQ Magazine : Spring 2008

"Stimulated by the 'New Labour' government in the 1990s, the economic role and function of the UK's creative industries aroused international interest. Chris Smith, Britain's New Labour Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, confirmed early in his ministry that the creative industries were a growth sector of the UK economy, saying 'It is incumbent on the government, in partnership with industry, to take active steps to promote economic growth in the creative and cultural sector. If we do not do so, then others will reap stressing efficiency, effectiveness, value for money, and market forces. Smith reinforces this interpretation: 'ensuring that the full economic and employment impact of the whole range of creative industries is acknowledged and assisted by government'. (Smith 1998)

The DCMS's interest and engagement with the creative industries, through the establishment of the Creative Industries Task Force (CITF), chaired by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, cannot be seen as anything other than a direct engagement by the generation and exploitation of intellectual property'. (Creative Industries Task Force 1998)

The sectors identified within this framework are: 'advertising, architecture, the art and antiques market, crafts, design, designer fashion, film, interactive leisure software, music, the performing arts, publishing, software, television and radio'. (Creative Industries Task Force 1998)"
