The Creativity Greenhouse project funded by EPSRC investigates whether facilitated creativity activities (e.g. funding sandpits, bridging the gaps events, group brainstorms) can be conducted with participants remote to each other, supported by digital communication technologies. Use of such technologies could enable the capability to work without geographical and/or time constraints and could enhance the pool of people involved in contributing to meetings and generating ideas.
Use of technology could also support more efficient and cost-effective ways of working, e.g. resulting in significant savings on meeting costs. Following a collaborative pilot of the Creativity Greenhouse approach, run by Horizon Digital Economy Research and EPSRC, the aim of this project is to develop the existing approach (consisting of event structure, technology set-up and evaluation method arrived at during the pilot project) to a stage where it can be used more widely across EPSRC and beyond.
