REACT (Research and Enterprise in Arts and Creative Technology) is one of four knowledge exchange hubs awarded nationally as part of a £16 million investment by the Arts and Humanities Research Council for knowledge exchange projects between research academics, creative industry partners and businesses. It will run February 2012-16. Nick Kaye is Co-director of the REACT Hub, with Robert Bickers (University of Bristol), the Hub Director, Jon Dovey (University of West of England), and Clare Reddington for Bristol iShed. The Hub is a partnership between the universities of Bristol, Exeter, UWE, Cardiff and Bath.

REACT is supported by an award from the AHRC of £3.9million, with a total project value of £5million. REACT will have two physical locations: at the Watershed in Bristol, and at the Centre for Intermedia at the Innovation Centre at Exeter. Over its 4 year duration, REACT will invest over £3million on up to 70 knowledge exchange projects in the South West and nationally.
