CELEBRATING INNOVATION ACROSS THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES IN EDINBURGH AND BEYOND!

 

Celebrating the first year of Creative Informatics and the achievements of our creative community!

Over the last year, we have provided funding and development opportunities to a wide range of creative individuals and organisations in Edinburgh and South East Scotland, enabling them to explore how data can be used to develop ground-breaking new products, businesses and experiences.

Our first CI Innovation Showcase took place on Wednesday the 17th of June and shone a spotlight on some of the creative projects we have supported to date, exploring the impact our programme is having on Edinburgh and South East Scotland’s ecosystem, and celebrating the learning and successes of the Creative Informatics community.
