Atlantic project full bleed greyscale for The Bridge

The Bridge drives Knowledge Exchange, Impact and Placemaking initiatives for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business. Our team brings together academia (researchers, students, technical and professional services staff) with communities, organisations, businesses and the self-employed in order to exchange ideas and expertise.

We aim to fuse the region’s creative talent and digital resources, with a focus on maximising the value and outcomes from all interactions for all parties. The Bridge unlocks the power of the University and makes it work for people.
