The UK’s creative industries are world-leading. From our film and television companies to our museums and galleries, they are, as government has said, ‘at the heart of the nation’s competitive advantage’. However, their current success and global leadership are at risk through a wave of technological disruption transforming the way creative products and experiences are made and ultimately the way they are consumed.
The Convergent Screen Technologies and performance in Realtime (CoSTAR) programme is part of a £481 million portfolio of research and innovation infrastructure investments announced in June 2022.
The CoSTAR programme proposes a national response to the risks and challenges facing our screen and performance industries. It seeks to reinforce our strategic leadership position in the global creative industries by investing in world-leading research, development and innovation (RD&I) facilities and programmes that will unlock the immediate and long-term economic and creative value set of a set of rapidly evolving creative technologies.
