Integrated to the past, present and future of the College of Arts is a solid grounding in the community. Not only local to Glasgow, but across Scotland and internationally. Our ongoing relationships with various bodies external to the institution enables the College of Arts to provide world class research that is relevant to the cultural sector and the wider economy.
The College of Arts hosted an Industry Day event (31st May 2013) which was aimed at Arts, Creative, Cultural and Heritage organisations. The event presented an opportunity for both the private and public sectors to learn of the many ways in which they can benefit from the strengths and resources of the College of Arts. You can review the 8 Themes and 74 Case studies from the day in our online magazine. The audio and PPT presentations from the day have been used to create a video diary from the event and these are also available online. We hope that these resources will assist in developing your understanding of the broad ranging expertise available within the College of Arts - Prof Murray Pittock, Head of College of Arts

Examples of KE include but are not limited to student internships, continued professional development, consultancy, collaborative research, development of spin out companies etc.
