The FuseBox was founded based on the findings of the Brighton Fuse Report. Brighton Fuse starts with the belief that by connecting the arts, humanities and design with digital and ICT, then creativity and innovation can be enhanced.
An initial 2-year research and development project which mapped, measured and assisted Brighton's creative, digital and IT (CDIT) cluster was carried out in 2013. The project supported mutually beneficial connections between higher education, those engaged in the creation of arts and culture and Brighton's digital technology sector.

A further study was then carried out, this time focusing on freelancers in the sector.
Following on from the findings of the Brighton Fuse report, the FuseBox24 project examined in further detail the conditions necessary to accelerate innovation in the Creative, Digital and IT sector, a strong and growing part of the UK economy.
The Brighton Fuse - 3 Years On
The Brighton Fuse report was revisited three years later in 2015 with a particular focus on three urgent issues: the on-going resilience of the cluster; business models of the firms; and the skills required for CDIT work.
