Report on the findings of the AHRC-funded Brighton Fuse 'FuseBox' Knowledge Exchange Project based on an experimental new business start-up support programme in the creative and digital sector. The FuseBox24 project found that CDIT innovators: Trade in ideas and content, but tend not to worry about protecting intellectual property - -open innovation and collaborative approaches dominate. Often as sole traders or micro-businesses need shared spaces in which to collaborate with others to develop ideas. Need support, capability and new tools to enable them to get the most out of collaborations for sustainable innovation. The Fusebox24 findings demonstrated that arts, humanities and design approaches are highly effective in meeting these needs.
