University of Portsmouth

As Business Development and Project Manager at University of Portsmouth, Pippa utilises her experience and passion for the Creative Industries to specialise in Creative and Immersive XR - developing new and rewarding partnerships at all levels. She recently led the creation, development and implementation of the Centre for Creative and Immersive XR (CCIXR) at the University of Portsmouth, and managed the Innovate UK Audience of the Future Demonstrator Performance Project. The Demonstrator project (one of 4 in the UK to receive Industrial Strategy Challenge Funds) investigates the future of immersive technology in the performance sphere - and includes 15 world-leading partners, led by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Pippa became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) in 2017, in recognition of her work in this area.
