REACTOR is a regional development project led by Anglia Ruskin University and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The project's aim is to support the growth of an applied games sector in the Cambridgeshire/Peterborough region by enabling connections between businesses and our talent, expertise, facilities and grants. A total of £1 million will be committed to help new and existing businesses in all sectors to use games technologies and user-based design in innovative products and services – creating applied games and, ultimately, a new applied games sector in the region.
