The Technology Strategy Board, a body set up by the government last year to support and invest in technology research, development and commercialisation, has awarded the management of a new knowledge transfer network to a consortium which includes developer organisation Tiga.

The Creative Industries Technology Innovation Network (CITIN) is designed to stimulate innovation across the creative industries and facilitate an easier and more rapid transfer of knowledge between businesses.

Tiga CEO Richard Wilson was delighted that the developer body was part of the winning bid.

"Tiga aims to make the UK the best place in the world to do games business," he said. "I am delighted therefore that Tiga is part of CITIN. Technological innovation is crucial to Tiga members.

"Our participation in the CITIN should help to disseminate best technological practice and innovation across the games development sector and our experience to date with delivering knowledge transfer and networking activities we hope will benefit and strengthen all of the creative industries."

Other members of the consortium are the University of the Arts London, Imperial College London and The Royal Institute of British Architects, and CITIN will be implemented across videogames, advertising, architecture, crafts, performing arts, TV and radio, film and video, designer fashion, software, music, design and publishing.
