Brighton: The SuperFused City? What the Brighton Fuse Research Project tells us about the future of business Tuesday 15 October 2013 Doors open 6.00pm Sallis Benney Theatre, Grand Parade, University of Brighton Sign up to attend here We would like extend a special invitation for you to join us at Brighton: The SuperFused City? to discuss with us the implications of the Brighton Fuse research findings for Brighton & Hove and for the UK economy. For the past two years, the Brighton Fuse team have been investigating how Brighton’s creative, digital & technology cluster functions. The project has been funded by the AHRC and delivered by Wired Sussex, the Universities of Brighton and Sussex and the National Centre for Universities and Business. With a large team of researchers collecting, collating and analysing data, stories and experiences, it is one of the most detailed analyses of any cluster ever undertaken in the UK. At this special event on 15th October, we will be unveiling the results of this research, and sharing with you the individual, corporate and economic insights that it has generated. We will discuss the value and challenges of creating a SuperFused economy, and how people, businesses and cities might benefit from our findings. We believe that a new formula for success has emerged in the digital economy and for Brighton & Hove to truly benefit from the city’s new economic drivers, there needs to be radical changes to the way we understand and support the creation of value. Please join us at Grand Parade to discuss the findings with us and with each other. We hope it will prove to be an interesting and exciting evening. Refreshments and snacks will be provided. If you would like to attend the event, please register for a place here.
