The new publication Beyond the Creative Campus: Reflections on the Evolving Relationship between Higher Education and the Creative Economy presents the final report from a two year research network project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the UK, entitled "Beyond the Campus: Connecting Knowledge and Creative Practice Communities across Higher Education and the Creative Economy" (AH/J005800/1). The research network was created to provide a platform for academics, practitioners, artists, cultural organizations, business development managers and others working in this area to exchange knowledge, to make connections and discuss collaboration between higher education and the creative economy. This final report offers reflections on the collaborative practices emerging between higher education and the creative economy. It highlights the need to develop a better understanding of the practices and interactions at the crossroads between academia, the creative economy and public policy, and proposes a new framework as a useful tool through which to understand collaboration and explore the challenges and future scenarios of creative engagement across and beyond academia. According to the authors, this publication may serve as a 'critical friend' and a helpful guide for policy organizations, academics, creative practitioners, artists and cultural organizations.
