In the fifth instalment of our case study series, we are looking at the Royal College of Music (RCM), the world’s leading institution for performing arts. Read more about participation in MTSC:
“For us one of the biggest benefits from the MTSC has been just encouraging us to think more along these lines and looking at how the work that we’re doing could be packaged into medtech applications.”
“…the basis of the idea has been there in the background, but through the MTSC, [we] were able to pursue that further.”
As might be expected from an institution that emphasises both creativity and discipline, the ventures to have come out of the MTSC are particularly diverse. Some directly involve participation in music, whereas others take principles and ideas from music psychology and performance science.
Perhaps one of the most important legacies of the MTSC has been to provide a nudge in terms of evolving thinking at RCM, at a time when innovation and enterprise was already moving up the agenda.
