- Do creative businesses in the UK face significantly different barriers in their access to finance compared with other sectors of the economy?
- What are the key factors that constrain access to finance for UK creative businesses?
- Depending on the answer to question 2, what, if any, policies should be implemented in order to improve access to finance for creative businesses?
We are particularly interested in proposals that address the questions above using quantitative methods and economics, and with an awareness of issues relevant to specific creative sub-sectors. We are also interested in proposals which make use of and effectively integrate qualitative and quantitative methods. Proposals which can be completed earlier than the indicative deadline for submission of the final report below are particularly welcome.
Please send us your proposals no later than 12.00 noon on Friday, 6 February 2009.
