The Culture and Creativity Research Institute is Sheffield Hallam University's largest and highest rated community of researchers. 

It continues the work of the former Cultural, Communication and Computing Research Institute, a large majority of whose work was recognised in the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) as being of international significance.

The institute is all about making connections – bringing together specialisms in art, design, media production, communication studies, computing and engineering into the University's largest community of researchers.

The institute includes several research centres and groups:

The Culture and Creativity Research Institute provides a business focused consultancy and research service to businesses through our dedicated Knowledge Transfer team.

The institute is also home to Design Futures, a discrete unit delivering packaging and product design research to industry. Design Futures has a proven track record as innovators being cited as inventors or contributors to a portfolio of intellectual property, it has accrued a number of design awards.

The institute is housed in the landmark Cantor building at Sheffield Hallam University.
