“We’re delighted that our research impact, a particular focus for this cycle, has been judged to be joint first in the UK and highest in Northern Ireland (100% outstanding/4*) across two case studies, one on creative technologies and practices empowering musicians with, and without, disabilities, and one on the use of data to drive organisational change in the creative sector.
More broadly, it's been the unit's privilege to influence practice across the UK (via international-level arts institutions including the Barbican, National Theatre, and English National Opera, and via the UKRI Creative Clusters programme), Ireland (at national level in the conservatoire and arts sectors, and with the state broadcaster, RTÉ), Northern Ireland (Arts Council NI and Audiences NI) and the wider European and global spheres.”
