Person

Hasan Bakhshi

Hasan leads Nesta's creative and digital economy policy and research. 
His recent work includes co-authoring the Next Gen skills review of the video games and visual effects industries, which has led to wholesale reforms of the school ICT and computing curriculum in England, and the Manifesto for the Creative Economy, which sets out ten recommendations by which governments can help the creative economy grow.
 
Hasan has a particular interest in data and experimental research methods: in 2010, he designed and piloted in Manchester Creative Credits, a business support scheme structured as a randomised controlled trial; in 2011, he devised the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts which has been piloted in England, Scotland and Wales, and rolled out in a three-year partnership with Arts Council England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
