About Us

The University of Reading is engaged in benefiting commerce and industry by contributing to the knowledge economy through the sharing of expertise and resources; Black Box is one of many enterprises supporting this connection between industry and academic research.

Academic staff are encouraged to commercialise research output through the formation of spin-out companies; this is how Black Box training was created.

Black box methodologies have been part of the department's degree courses for over 30 years. In 2006, staff from the Department of Film, Theatre & Television worked with some of the department's alumni, now working in a range of relevant professions, to develop Black Box as a training workshop with applications for business and the public sector.
