DRIVA (Digital Research & Innovation Value Accelerator) is a £1.3m University of Brighton research project funded by the European Structural Investment Fund and Arts Council England that aims to provide technology SMEs, creative arts practitioners and cultural organisations unprecedented access to Gatwick Airport’s big data.
We believe that the super-fusion of data-driven innovation and creative practice with access to artistic and scientific expertise can drive economic productivity, community impact and place-making in our region.
By unlocking the commercial, creative, social and/ or critical, value of data of from Gatwick Airport, and generating insights into the 50 million people who depart and arrive on our doorstep each year, we can accelerate the development of an untold range of new data-driven products, services, artworks and experiences.
Over the next two years, we’ll be supporting free, intensive support, access to facilities, resources and expertise alongside cash awards to bring together hundreds of creative and technology organisations and practitioners to make the most of data as both material and currency.
Who is running these events?
These events are designed and developed by always possible in partnership with the University of Brighton and a range of expert cutting-edge data-driven practitioners from the worlds of business, tech, the arts and academic research.
