North-east gets £3m for digital skills development

The Arts and Humanities Research Council and five universities in north-east England have launched a project to look at how the creative, digital and IT sectors can play a bigger role in the region's economy.

The Creative Fuse North East project has a total budget of £3 million from the AHRC, Newcastle, Northumbria, Durham and Teesside universities and the University of Sunderland.

It will run for two-and-a-half years and is being led by Newcastle University. The project will map the creative, digital and commercial landscape of the north-east of England in terms of the mix of skills, knowledge and support available, and identify opportunities for more effective use of resources and best practice in workforce development.
