Institute of Creative Technologies

The Institute of Creative Technologies is a home for new ideas, risky play and rapid prototyping.

Since it’s foundation in 2006, the Institute has been bringing together technologists, creative practitioners and researchers across discipline areas to develop truly innovative transdisciplinary creative technologies practice and research.

The IOCT makes and shares new knowledge and expertise, synthesising practice based research with pioneering advances in digital computing, information technologies, creative practice, science and engineering. Work made falls across four interdisciplinary themes; Creativity in the Digital Age, Urban Living, Life-long Wellbeing, and Social Value.

The IOCT comprises of a core team of staff and visiting researchers, a vibrant postgraduate community across MA and PhD, a programme of research projects, events, and activities, a number of key industrial and commercial partners, and strong links with local, national and international creative industries.

Knowledge exchange and public engagement are central to the IOCT, and we are always looking to develop new collaborative partnerships with individuals and organisations. We are particularly keen to work on projects that use creative technologies to make a difference to our daily lives -our urban environments, our health and wellbeing, our engagement with culture and creativity and our communities.
