Research assistance, conference organisation, research communications, co-editing papers

Beyond the Campus is an AHRC-funded research network set up by King's College London (Dr Roberta Comunian) and Manchester University (Dr Abigail Gilmore) in 2012. Over 2 years it has investigated the growing importance of interaction between higher education and the creative economy in terms of working partnerships, shared output and economic prospects. This feeds into the team's research narrative around professional development and place attachment of creative graduates in specific cities and regions.
