UWE research has influenced UK public policy, informing the Department of
Culture Media and Sport's Film Policy Review report recommendations, which
shaped the British Film Institute's policy and strategic priorities.
Members of the public have engaged with local cinema heritage as a result
of the development of the Curzon Memories App, preserving
historical memories for the benefit of the community in Clevedon, a
process which has also engaged local schools. Through UWE co-creative
research for the City Strata project, technology partner Calvium
has increased its product portfolio to include scalable location-aware
apps, and heritage partner Bristol City Council, has extended the reach of
its Know Your Place platform, directly leading to a joint
commission from English Heritage worth £20K.
