Championing Research and Development in key growth sectors of the economy.
Belle Media has long championed investment in creative industries. When Innovate UK (Technology Strategy Board) sought to identify which key sectors should lead the way on its nascent Catapult programme, Belle brought together a pan-UK, multi-partner, consortium of 10 sector-leading digital companies and 10 Higher Education Institutions to make the case for Creative Digital. Belle highlighted the importance of a London base if the UK was to capitalize on the unique range of world class digital businesses and expertise that exists within the South East Cluster.
The Digital Enterprise Partnership’s (DEP) work has now been taken forward by the Digital Catapult – (launched Nov 2014 and based in Kings Cross, London).
One of the highlights was representing the DEP at UKTI’s Global Business Summit on Creative Services at Lancaster House during the 2012 Games (See Kay pictured beside 007’s Aston Martin).
