Over the last 3 years Kaleider and the University of Exeter have been working to develop their relationship and find new ways of collaborating.In our jobs we often spend our days working with others to develop their ideas, support them to find investment, to find others to work with, or to be a critical friend.Speed updating is a lively, informal quick-fire way to tell people what you’ve been up to or potential opportunities for collaboration.

While there is strong evidence that it has increased since the 1970s, there is active debate in the United States regarding the appropriate measurement, causes, effects and solutions to income inequality.

The two major political parties have different approaches to the issue, with Democrats historically emphasizing that economic growth should result in shared prosperity (i.e., a pro-labor argument advocating income redistribution), while Republicans tend to downplay the validity or feasibility of positively influencing the issue (i.e., a pro-capital argument against redistribution).

1 of the developments we have observed over the last few years is the impact on research and practice when researchers and the creative industries collaborate.

We would like to grow the community of researchers and the creative industries working together across Exeter and encourage cross-fertilization, dialogue and shared knowledge.

For example, the top 0.1% of households received approximately 10% of the pre-tax income in 2013, versus approximately 3-4% between 1951-1981.
