Knowledge exchange in action
The University of Brighton remains at the forefront of public and community engagement activity and research partnerships, consistently demonstrating its commitment to communities and organisations locally and regionally.
A recent collaboration between the university and The Regency Town House used augmented reality and machine learning to enable museum users to recreate original Georgian interior designs by digitally ‘painting’ them onto a wall. In a series of events for the pilot, the museum became a living lab for visitor experience, enabling participants to have a deeper connection to the Regency Town House and addressing the need for the museum and heritage centre to develop immersive and compelling ways for audiences to learn (opens in YouTube) about the architecture and social history of Brighton and Hove.
The university’s commitment to working with businesses and the public and third sector was also recognised, reflecting successes through recent SME-focused innovation programmes, Research in Sussex Excellence (RISE) and Brighton Research Innovation Technology Exchange (BRITE), as well as its leading role in delivering Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs). The university has delivered 280 KTP projects to date, with 90% of projects exceeding objectives, gaining A grades from Innovation UK.
Research England has provided updated interactive dashboards, enabling deeper insights into institutional knowledge exchange contexts and various university engagements.
