CEDI has been used as the engagement vehicle in discussion with local businesses, networks and stakeholders, resulting in:

  • Co-delivery of 2 large-scale (£5M) ERDF programmes via the M3 & Solent LEP regions, focussed on Low Carbon Innovation in SME’s and led by Portsmouth University.
  • Successful external contract with Malmesbury Town Council via TVPP Ltd for digital visualisation, design work and consultancy in a funded project.
  • Successful internal WRAP applications
  • Creative and digital network engagement based in Winchester/Hampshire
  • Engagement with local SMEs for support (current case with The Earth Museum and Winchester City App)
  • 14 VR engagement workshops with staff/students to showcase VR potential
