UK trade association teams up with University of the Arts London, Imperial College and Royal Institute of British Architects

The UK's trade association for games studios Tiga has successfully bid for a place on the team managing the Government's creative industries knowledge transfer network.

Chose by the Technology Strategy Board, Tiga will be working with University of the Arts London, Imperial College London and The Royal Institute of British Architects to manage the network.

Design to 'stimulate innovation across all sectors of the creative industries and increase the pace of technology transfer' the network is being designed to offer activities and initiatives to bring together business and technology organisations with academia.

“Tiga aims to make the UK the best place in the world to do games business. I am delighted therefore that Tiga is part of the Creative Industries Technology Innovation Network (CITIN). Technological innovation is crucial to Tiga members," said Richard Wilson, Tiga CEO.

"Our participation in the CITIN should help to disseminate best technological practice and innovation across the games development sector and our experience to date with delivering knowledge transfer and networking activities we hope will benefit and strengthen all of the creative industries.”
