Researching Creative and Collaborative Knowledge Exchange in Northern Ireland: Creative People, Creative Places, Creative Networks

CXNI Project Development Award: £2,500 – Proposal Deadline: 5pm, 16 January 2014
Recipients Announced: Early February – Projects Completed: 5pm, 30 May 2014

CXNI invites proposals for new creative knowledge exchange projects in Northern Ireland. Projects must be a collaboration between any individual or group of individuals at a third-level institution (students and faculty eligible), and any individual or group of individuals working in industry (as a solo practitioner, micro business, or other organization).

CXNI intends to stimulate new projects, either implemented in full or as proof of concept. Collaborations already in full development will not be eligible under this scheme. Preference may be given to solo and micro practitioners, and/or to projects which consider issues relating to disadvantaged communities in Northern Ireland.

CXNI will offer successful applicants a bursary of £2,500, administrative support from the CXNI team, and support from the University of Ulster and Queen’s University Belfast such as use of institutional facilities for the purposes of this project, subject to agreement. As part of this scheme, successful participants are required to participate in further CXNI research.

To apply, please submit a 500-word proposal signed by all parties involved, a project budget, and where appropriate, examples of relevant creative work by 5pm on 16 January 2014 via email to: and
