We support blue-sky research and development while helping to augment existing projects and find new avenues for enterprise and industry partnerships.
The creative industries offer multiple opportunities for researchers, students, and practitioners to work together with industry to tackle the problems that face society today. In 2017, the UK government reported that the creative industries contributed £92b to the UK economy, and the South West region continues to have the highest productivity rates across the sector. Our recent major funding successes are enabling multiple high-value R&D projects to take place, making CCCI a key contributor to this dynamic and growing cluster.
From historians to performers, writers to technologists, designers to educators, psychologists to artists, the Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries (CCCI) supports innovation across the University. CCCI works across the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Art and Design, Bath Business School, and the Institute for Education, providing a home for scholars and practitioners whose research engages with the cultural and creative industries.
In tandem with that, CCCI also provides a conduit for the creative and cultural industries to engage with our research, facilitating dynamic pathways for knowledge exchange between the University and industry regionally, nationally, and internationally. Building on the University's excellence in practice-based and creative research, the Centre links academic research, creative practice, and industry in developing commercial and cultural opportunities that directly benefit a broad community of interests now and in the future.
